Jerome David Salinger J. D. Salinger was an American writer, short stories writer and novelist .He is best remembered for his bestselling novel The Catcher in the Rye . Throughout most of his career, J. D. Salinger lived a private life. He was part of Nazi Germany during World War II. He began his writing his short stories when he was in high school. However, the struggle to make his work published was not easy. The New Yorker magazine published a few of his work after initially rejecting several of them. Among them were: Perfect Day for Bananafish, Slight Rebellion off Madison and Hapworth.. He went silent, never participating in the public after he became famous. In 1965, his last original work was published. It is also interesting to note that Salinger uses a bright hunting cap as a symbol of protection, fencing from the outside world. The cap protects Holden at dangerous moments, like, for example, when Stredleyter asked Holden to write an essay for him and later, at the time of the fight with him. The cap is a protective tool for him, and without it he loses his confidence.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
