...wenn er, zum Einen ein Meister der Erzählkunst, zum Anderen ein menschenscheuer Einsiedler, mitbekäme, wie hier auf mehreren hundert Seiten ein oberflächliches Cocktailparty-Geschnatter zu seinem Leben veröffentlicht wird, welches sich liest wie ein Skript zu dem 2014 erscheinenden Film.

Als Salinger-Fan hab ich irgendwann angewidert aufgehört mit dem Lesen und wende mich lieber wieder der sehr guten Biographie von Kenneth Slawenski ("Salinger - A Life") zu.

Because I consider myself a fan of J.D. Salinger I had big expectations from this book by authors David Shields and Shane Salerno.

They made extensive research that lasted for nine years, they gathered 200+ interviews all around the world, found lot of history records and lost photographs, even they managed to find some of his unpublished works but in the end the result is not so good.

Salinger was a complicated person and obviously it wasn't easy to write biography of such a man.
Unfortunately, the reader will learn only few facts beside countless life episodes and anecdotes, not completely uninteresting but not something that we could expected.
The only exception is completely covered Salinger's experience during World War II, from Normandy invasion to the liberation of German Dachau concentration camp.

The main problem is that book is not really written in usual way, but more it resembles screenplay to the Salinger movie that would be also released.
Indeed, you will see the name of each person speaking in separate paragraph so reader have an impression that this book is one big interview with countless participants that is hard to follow.

The other problems are incompleteness of end notes, lots of misspelling, lack of index, etc. that all suggest that book was rushed to sale to accompany the release of the movie.
The book price is also a bit too high, especially for paperback edition but also considering that the book is actually of smaller dimensions than usual hardcovers.

Overall, after you read this book you will probably have feeling that in fact not much useful can be learned from it about Salinger.

Das Buch ist sehr informativ, enthält viele neue Erkenntnisse, neue Text- wie auch fotografische Quellen. Es gibt Wiederholungen, aber jeder Salinger-Liebhaber sollte es lesen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Understand Salinger, and you'll understand Holden and Seymour 13. Dezember 2013
Von Adam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Readers of fiction often wonder whether an author's personal experiences are woven into his or her stories. Biographies about famous writers are attractive because they reveal those connections. "Salinger" is a comprehensive account of J. D. Salinger's affluent youth, horrific war experiences, publishing achievements, romantic failures, and eventual withdrawal from society. By learning about Salinger's life, readers will come to understand Holden Caulfield and Seymour Glass a good deal better.

This book is not, as some reviewers here have implied, a transcript of the "Salinger" documentary film. At over 700 pages, it goes deeper than any movie could. It contains bibliographies of writings by and about J. D. Salinger, brief biographies of the people quoted in the book, and even descriptive sketches of the fictional Glass family. It does not, unfortunately, have an index,
and it is sometimes difficult to tell in what context a statement was made (such as an interview given specifically for this project, or some other source).

Other reviewers have lamented how the book is comprised of quotation after quotation and does not follow a traditional narrative format. But what better way to learn about Salinger's life than to read firsthand accounts directly from the people who knew him? Instead of reading the biographer's description, let Jean Miller, for example, tell how she met Salinger on the beach when she was fourteen (inspiring his stories "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" and "For Esme - With Love and Squalor"). Occasionally, the same stories are told by different voices, although this does not result in monotony, as some reviewers suggest. It only helps to build a more complete account of the man and his experiences, and attentive readers will be intrigued when two eyewitnesses tell slightly different versions of the same event.

This book is not just a repackaging of old Salinger anecdotes, as has been claimed here. It contains new, previously unpublished material that has become available only since Salinger's death, and it concludes with a few tantalizing pages that hint we have not seen the last of the Caulfield and Glass families.

5.0 von 5 Sternen People who wouldn't talk while Salinger was alive talked to the authors and provided personal photos. 6. Januar 2014
Von Computer_Geek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Yeah, I'm a fan (of Salinger's writing and of this book). People who refused to talk during Salinger's 90+ years opened up to these biographers after his death (and they allowed their personal photos to be used). The amount of time, energy, and money that the authors spent in order to obtain all of these details and photos is astonishing. They also produced a documentary that's excellent (available from Amazon and Netflix streaming). I've read 6-8 biographies about Salinger; this one is by far the best.

If you want to know what was in his safe and what will be published from it, this book is for you.

Margaret Salinger's book (J.D.'s daughter) is also excellent, as is Joyce Maynard's biography.
4.0 von 5 Sternen J.D. Salinger and Holden Caulfield 24. September 2016
Von staytrue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I read THE CATCHER IN THE RYE many years ago when I was a teenager. My parents and other adults certainly didn't want me to read it, but I did. I didn't quite understand Holden Caulfield's motives for flunking out of school and wandering irreverently in his young life. Now I do. After reading SALINGER, I came away with an understanding of J. D. Salinger, the author of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE, who projected much of himself onto Holden and then hid away from most of the world. I've re-read CATCHER now with a completely different perspective, thanks to Sheilds' and Salerno's book. By interviewing people who knew J.D. Salinger, Sheilds and Salerno revealed probably as much about the reclusive Salinger that anyone might ever hope to know.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Fact filled, entertaining, yet all too disturbing 23. März 2014
Von Andres Pedraza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, Salinger admittedly wrote one of the GREAT American Novels of the XXth Century. He was also, for a while, and even through today, a celebrated short story writer. His life intrigues everyone more for the fact that he seems to have walked away from it all and hid away in his cabin, than because of his writing. Fact is, there's not that much published writing, though it's rumored that a veritable stockpile of unpubished short stories exists, locked away somewhere, and not to be published till 2015 and beyond.

So, Salinger seems to have suffered, or rather seen, very traumatizing things in WWII, which left him broken. The book argues that it also made him a genius writer. His first love was an underage debutante, back when he was young, too. She left him for none other than Charlie Chaplin, a much older, actually, way older man. This seems to have also broken Salinger, too, even before WWII cemented it. He would spend the rest of his life pursuing what can only be labelled jailbait. He seems to have courted them when they were underage but waited to consummate until they were legal, barely. After the deed was done, they rarely lasted. He seemed to have loved pursuing innocence, but once "sullied", he was no longer interested.

That's the part I found disturbing. On the one hand, his pursuit of jailbait, especially as an older man, detracts from the image I had of the author based on his work. Now I realize we all have our flaws, but Salinger's was a pretty significant one, at least to me. At the same time, this book seemed to descend into almost tabloid level glee in recounting some of Salinger's history, and one can't help but feel sad for the violation of Salinger's privacy. Especially seeing as he was arguably pathological in his defense of it.

I enjoyed the book, but some parts of it remind you of the old saying, about things you can't unsee. And I am simplifying the book's contents incredibly with my review. So please be aware I am only touching on a few aspects of it, albeit some pretty significant ones. I am also skipping over tons of material, a lot of it very interesting. Read this. In the end, it was worth the time.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Amateur diagnosing undoes volume 30. November 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The information from those who knew Salinger I find interesting. Where I have problems is with the amateur diagnosing that the editors of this volume try to template on Salinger. "It is because he suffered from PTSD...." becomes the rationale for most every event in his life post WWII. Likely he did experience what was referred to as combat fatigue post his experiences in WWII particularly in being one of the first on scene to liberate the extermination camps. But the authors have really tried to combine two books into one: the first are the interviews with those who knew JDS and then their own 'book' about his psychiatric Dx. Personally, I found myself, after a short while, skipping over any of the authors pontificating and going directly to the interviews.
