J.D. Salinger dead at 91; Mankoff, gadget guy; Video: four New Yorker cartoonists in Chicago
The New York Times has reported that J.D. Salinger has died. The author of The Catcher in the Rye was 91. Salinger's relationship with The New Yorker began in 1941 when the magazine bought "Slight Rebellion Off of Madison" a short story that introduced the world to Holden Caufield. The story wasn't published until December 21, 1946. "Hapworth 16, 1924" was Salinger's last piece in The New Yorker -- it appeared in the issue of June 19, 1965.
