I was going to post the first Friday Round Up today, including faculty news, latest & greatest publications, etc. But the truth:
I’m just sick of ego, ego, ego. My own and everybody else’s. I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere, do something distinguished and all, be somebody interesting. It’s disgusting. -- J. D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey
Because this happened: J. D. Salinger, Literary Recluse, Dies at 91
And I'm also including here, the link to the piece Rick Moody wrote for NPR.
So I invite you to post your comments & thoughts about Salinger here, or not. Maybe the thing to do is to keep them to yourself. Don't ever tell anybody anything.
Hope to see you all tonight for the Dereks' reading.
