Wishlist: The Real Holden Caulfield

The Real Holden Caulfield

A PERFECT GIFT for that person on your list who just wants to be the catcher in the rye and all this holiday season. The Real Holden Caulfield is a short e-book published to mark the 60th anniversary of J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye” on July 16, 2011.

The book has been excerpted at The Awl, The Rumpus and Berfrois, and mentioned on Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish, Second Pass, 3 Quarks Daily and (even) Reader’s Digest.

You can read the whole book on your computer or e-reader for just $1.99 through PayPal.

And it’s for a good cause — in tribute to Seymour Glass, Sergeant X, Babe Gladwaller and Salinger himself, who was hospitalized for “Battle Fatigue” — or PTSD — after World War II, half of the proceeds from sales of “The Real Holden Caulfield will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.
