Dear J.D.

28 January 2010

Dear J.D.,
Thanks for that one great summer when I was 19 and read Nine Stories. You made me feel deep and literary, of which I was neither. There are images from those stories burned into my mind, specifically “Just Before the War with the Eskimos”.

I’m bummed I won’t get to stalk you this summer in northern New Hampshire; I was really looking forward to that.

While I honestly did not love The Catcher in the Rye, the story seems to often swirl through my head, which means you really were as good as they say.

Rest easy.

CB
