The book — available for $1.99 through PayPal — has been excerpted at The Awl (Holden Caulfield’s early stories), The Rumpus (standard reactions to Holden Caulfield) and Berfrois (the challenges of publishing, censoring and translating Holden).
Half the proceeds, i.e. the author’s cut of the sales, will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project in honor of J.D. Salinger’s service during World War II and his struggles with “battle fatigue,” or PTSD.
We encourage you to post your own thoughts on who you think the real Holden Caulfield is, and to share the site with all your friends.
Thanks for reading!
