Two Titans

(Art , Books, Fiction, History, Nonfiction) Permanent link

The world of arts and letters lost two titans today. Howard Zinn, the author of A People’s History of the United States and the notoriously reclusive J.D. Salinger, who wrote one of the most widely read books about teenage alienation ever written, The Catcher in the Rye. These two seminal works have been enormously influential in shaping the literary and intellectual life of several generations of writers, scholars and students.
