Sad news today that J.D. Salinger has died. His work lives on, however.

Here’s a great Time article about Salinger, including the magazine’s 1951 review of Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. At the end of the review, Time says:

For U.S. readers, the prize catch in The Catcher in the Rye may well be Novelist Salinger himself.

And of course, the blogosphere has been remembering the great writer. Here’s a post by agent Chris Richman at Upstart Crowe Literary

Rest in peace, J.D. Salinger.
