J. D. Salinger dies at 91

The famously reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye died today.  He will be greatly missed, despite having been so possessive of his privacy.

Journalists and bloggers are writing tributes far better than I could, so I'll leave you to them.  The New York Times has quite a bit of interesting pieces on Salinger (as well as Caulfield) here.
