The New Yorker was 20 cents a copy.
Today’s New Yorker is $5.99
This was the era during which J.D. Salinger
made his debut in The New Yorker.
Salinger was famous for being
brooding and reclusive; so what do you

that John Lennon’s murderer was
obsessed with his own
Catcher in the Rye?
Lennon is gone.
Salinger is gone.
The Wise Men are gone.
Yet all remain.
