The year 2011 marks not only the 60th anniversary of “The Catcher in the Rye,” but also the 50th anniversary of Joseph Heller’s “Catch-22” and the 40th anniversary of Sylvia Plath’s “The Bell Jar.”
There has been some great coverage of all three books’ milestones so far. Emily Gould writes about Plath’s novel at middle age over at Poetry Foundation, and Vanity Fair has a Tracy Daugherty piece on the birth of “Catch-22,” an excerpt from her recently published Heller biography. And while you can still get your copy of “The Real Holden Caulfield,” you can also head over to the Daily Beast Books section where Ned Vizzini, author of “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” wonders about Holden’s continuing relevance in an increasingly diverse society.
