iUniverse Presents ‘Unphony’ Writing Insights from J.D. Salinger
On January 31, 1948, the J.D. Salinger-written short story A Perfect Day for Bananafish appeared in the New Yorker. Over half a century after its publication, iUniverse Writer’s Tips pays tribute to the American literary legend through his pieces of writing advice.
A rare 1940s interview with The Catcher in the Rye author surfaced last year, two years after his death. Shirley Ardman, then an 18-year-old journalism student, reportedly talked with Salinger as part of a school requirement to conduct an interview with a published author. The meeting was one of the very few ones the reclusive writer agreed to have in his sixty-year writing stint. He lived a hermit life following a leaked and widely published interview he had in the 1950s.
Read these from Ardman’s report revealing some of Salinger’s writing two cents that have made him the celebrated and controversial writer that he was.
