If JD Salinger had never existed John Lennon would still be alive - not confrontational , just an observation

yeah but why Lennon? and what did Salinger's book have to do with it? I know he said he was inspired to murder Lennon, but what was the Catcher In The Rye connection...?

Briefly,

Chapman went to New York in October 1980 planning to kill Lennon. He left the city for a short while in order to obtain ammunition from his unwitting friend Dana Reeves in Atlanta. He returned to New York in November but, after going to the cinema and being inspired by the film Ordinary People, he returned to Hawaii, telling his wife he had been obsessed with killing Lennon but had snapped out of it. He made an appointment to see a clinical psychologist but instead, on December 6, flew back to New York. He offered cocaine to a taxi driver.[5] He reports having re-enacted scenes from The Catcher in the Rye.

Ridiculous. MDC would have read another book, by another author, and found another excuse to do what he did.

Been a LONG time since I've read it, but I don't remember anything about Holden killing, or even fantasizing about killing, a famous musician. I'm curious to know if you think there is any SPECIFIC passage in the book that might have sent MDC off the deep end and what that passage might be.

from what i remember, Holden Caulfield saw some people as being phoney, and Chapman saw the same thing in Lennon.

That's right. I remember that now. Not sure what it was about Lennon that Chapman thought was "phoney", though. Actually, it's hard to think of a celebrity LESS phoney than John Lennon.

This is STILL considered by his publisher to be his "current" official photo. It was taken in 1951.

OT: Legendary Author J.D. SALINGER dies at 91
Posted by: HelterSkelter ()

Author of one of the most legendary and famous books of all times - CATCHER IN THE RYE - has died at his home at the age of 91. He was know as a youth hero and and a fugitive from fame by living as a hard core recluse and never allowing Hollywood to make a film of his very controversial and well known book - an extreme rarity.

CATCHER IN THE RYE also has a very dark side when a crazed, insane Beatle's fan shot and killed John Lennon in December 1980, citing Salinger's novel as an inspiration. The murderer was arrested as he leaned against a wall next to the entrance to Lennon's upper West side NYC Dakota building (Site of Lennon's shooting) calmly reading the book.

Salinger remained a major recluse most of his adult life even though the curtain started to slightly part in recent years. In 2000, daughter Margeret Salinger's "Dreamcatcher" portrayed the writer as an unpleasant recluse who drank his own urine and spoke in tongues. People would did know him in his reclusive years usually had very little of any kind of positive behavior to report - maybe, with his death, a more balanced picture will be painted of the man, time will tell.

R.I.P. Mr Salinger

Salinger has had nothing published since 1965. Supposedly, he never stopped writing, and two completed, unpublished novels are "in the vaults", with instructions to his literary agent to publish them after his death.
