SF Edition, My Salinger Year (No. 66)

In the winter of 1996, 23-year-old Joanna Rakoff moved to New York City and took a job as assistant to a colourful, old-style literary agent whose wood-panelled office on Forty-Ninth Street was still stuck in the era of the typewriter, the Dictaphone and the photocopier. One of the Agency’s chief clients was J. D. Salinger, and when Rakoff was given the task of dealing with the steady stream of fan mail to the famously reclusive novelist she found herself becoming emotionally involved. Instead of sending the usual form letter, she started writing back. In this deliciously funny coming-of-age memoir, set against the backdrop of 1990s New York and the eccentric world of the Agency, she describes what happened next.

‘It’s just the ideal read . . .’
