Random quote of the day:


"It is my rather subversive opinion that a writer’s feelings of anonymity-obscurity are the second most valuable property on load to him during his working years."

—J. D. Salinger, dustcover of Franny and Zooey, quoted in Time, August 4, 1961







Illustrated version. )

It's quite interesting reading this article from 1961, part of Time's running feature "People," which gave blurbs on what the famous were up to at that moment in time. On the same page with the then 42-year-old Salinger's declaration is a piece about Hemingway's widow sorting through and packing up the long-time Hemingway house in Cuba after his suicide, deciding which of his works to destroy (on Hemingway's orders) and which to keep. The Eisenhowers were having a party, but poor Joe Louis was having serious tax problems. And on page 3, a poignant piece about a birthday cake for Jackie Kennedy, in the full flower of the Camelot years, when the big controversy of the day was how much money Jackie had spent on a recent party.
