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.
