Thank you, JD Salinger

If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

You won't be sorry, Jessie. I first read Catcher in the Rye in high school and couldn't forgive Holden his immaturity, but, later, as an adult, I found him completely endearing and beautifully vulnerable. His story broke my heart.

Me, too. I need to re-read it.
