40 years alone

“If you really want to hear about it the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born. What my lousy childhood was like. And how my parents were occupied and all before they had me. And all that David Copperfield kind of crap. But I don’t feel like going into it, if you really want to know the truth.” -J.D SALINGER

  1. This is probably my favourite opening paragraph. So many people go on about how it's such a shame J.D. Salinger lived as a recluse for half of his life but at least he produced (at least) one incredible piece of writing rather than a lifetime of mediocrity.
