"Let's go see Hemingway."

Fascinating article in Vanity Fair about J.D. Salinger excerpted from Kenneth Slawenski's new bio J.D. Salinger: A Life.

Great stuff about his life as a soldier. And I was particularly surprised to learn that Salinger palled around with Ernest Hemingway in Paris during World War II.

...Holden would not approve.
