A LifeDownloadable Audiobook - 2011
Kenneth Slawenski explores Salinger's privileged youth, long obscured by misrepresentation and rumor, revealing the brilliant, sarcastic, vulnerable son of a disapproving father and doting mother and his entrance into a social world where Gloria Vanderbilt dismissively referred to him as 'a Jewish boy from New York.' Here too are accounts of Salinger's first broken heart, and the devastating World War II service of which he never spoke, and which haunted him forever.
