Jerome David "J. D." Salinger (January 1, 1919 – January 27, 2010) was an American writer known for his widely read novel The Catcher in the Rye. Following his early success, Salinger led a very private life for more than a half-century.


J.D. Salinger ceased the publication of any of his new work in 1965 and halted interviews in 1980. He put up multiple “No Trespassing” signs and threatened people who dared to step on the property with a gun. He was the focus of much public speculation, his reclusive tendencies fueling the myths that obscured him.The New York Times reported, "Not even a fire that consumed at least half his home on Tuesday could smoke out the reclusive J. D. Salinger, author of the classic novel of adolescent rebellion, The Catcher in the Rye. Mr. Salinger is almost equally famous for having elevated privacy to an art form."
