Who is the Real Holden Caulfield?

The Real Holden Caulfield

SATURDAY July 16 WAS THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY of the publication of J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye.

To celebrate, The Fiction Advocate is publishing “The Real Holden Caulfield” a short e-book  by Michael Moats. You can read excerpts on The Awl and The Rumpus, then download the full version for $1.99.

And it’s for a good cause — in tribute to Seymour Glass, Sergeant X, Babe Gladwaller and Salinger himself, who was hospitalized for “Battle Fatigue” — or PTSD — after World War II, half of the proceeds from sales of “The Real Holden Caulfield” will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.
