RIP J. D. Salinger, 1919 - 2010

J. D. Salinger, the reclusive author of Catcher in the Rye and Franny and Zooey, passed away yesterday at the age of 91, ABC News reports.

Salinger's novels and short stories and their memorable protagonists (Holden Caulfield and the Glass family) have been a common source of inspiration for scores of individuals out there for writers, musicians, filmmakers, actors, artists, and others (including us), which ultimately speaks to the greatness of his writing. Hopefully his work will continue to inspire future generations as well.
