J.D. Salinger

I thought maybe I'd read something to her," Seymour said, and took down a book. "She's ten months old, for God's sake," I said. "I know," Seymour said. "They have ears. They can hear." The story Seymour read to Franny that night, was a favorite of his, a Taoist tale. To this day, Franny swears that she remembers Seymour reading it to her.

Uit: Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters:

Een trieste dag voor Seymour, Buddy, Boo Boo, Walt, Waker, Zooey en Franny, de briljant-tragische kinderen van Les en Bessie Glass.

J.D. Salinger is dood.
