The Catcher in the Rye -- Final Chapter

J.D. Salinger, Author of 'The Catcher in the Rye,' Is Dead at 91

J. D. Salinger, who was thought at one time to be the mostimportant American writer to emerge since World War II butwho then turned his back on success and adulation, has diedin Cornish, N.H., where he lived in seclusion for more than50 years, his son told The Associated Press. He was 91.

Mr. Salinger's literary reputation rests on a slender butenormously influential body of published work: the novel "TheCatcher in the Rye," the collection "Nine Stories" and twocompilations, each with two long stories about the fictionalGlass family: "Franny and Zooey" and "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction."

How's this for a soliloquy? There was a young man from Sparta,
Who was an incredible farter,
At the strength of one bean,
He could play, "God save the Queen,"
And Beethoven's, "Moonlight Sonata,"
The selection was tough, I admit,
He didn't stutter one bit,
His arse was aloft,
And he suddenly coughed,
And collapsed in a shower of shit!
