It's being reported that the legendary author of "The Catcher in the Rye" died of natural causes at his home on Wednesday, January 27th.
He was 91.
For decades, he lived his life isolated from the literary world and his fans. The Neighbors of his hometown in Cornish, New Hampshire rarely saw him and throughout his career he never returned calls or letters from those who read his novels. It was reported that he haven't published a book since 1965 and many are speculating that he left at least 10 novels in his safe - I guess we'll soon find out if this is truth.
Salinger is survived by his wife Colleen, son Matt and daughter Margaret, and three grandsons as well as his ex-wife and mother of their children, Claire Douglas.
