One of my favorite books ever is "The Catcher in the Rye" by JD Salinger. I recently re-read it for reference because the language inside it is so witty and original. Not only that, but the book is just plain hilarious, even though it was written in the 50s it still reads as very clever and witty. Second of all, its a coming of age story, which is in a sense the kind of story I am attempting to write, even though my main character is 36. I guess what I'm trying to say is that people can come of age at any age. Right?
