    Shields and Salerno illuminate most brightly the last 56 years of Salinger’s life: a period that, until now, had remained completely dark to biographers. Provided unprecedented access to diaries, letters, legal records, and secret documents, listeners will feel they have, for the first time, gotten beyond Salinger’s meticulously built-up wall. The result is the definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating figures of the 20th century.

    Melinda says: "Ingenious novel or biography? Hard to tell...."
    "Fascinating information about an elusive character"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Salinger to be better than the print version?

    The print edition offered more in the way of information about all the people quoted in the audio version. It had a glossary of the individuals in Salinger's life which was necessary. The audio version could have been enhanced with better description of who was being cited and how they fit in with Salinger's life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Salinger?

    The description of the assault on Utah Beach, the fighting in the Hurtgen forest, the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of the concentration camp was painful but exceptional.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It was too much for one sitting.
