Colbert Explains Everything About J.D. Salinger

Colbert Explains Everything About J.D. Salinger | Google Lit Trips: Reading About Reading | Scoop.it
Based on some reviews of the new documentary "Salinger," we recommend skipping out and watching Stephen Colbert's Book Club devoted to the legendary author instead.
GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:

Nobody sees the weirdness of the world like Stephen Colbert. Who else has the vision to remind us of good ol' Holden and J.D?

 

Meanwhile, I'm re-reading Catcher in the Rye and wishing I had a class full of kids to share this with.

 

An aside, in my attempt to divert students' interest in hoarding extra credit points over actually wanting to learn more for the sake of learning more, I used to offer extra credit for bringing in as much information as they could find out about Catcher in the Rye on the internet. I told them I'd give them some puny amount of extra credit for bringing in a printout of a website about Catcher in the Ry that filled exactly on side of a piece of paper.

 

Of course I knew what Stephen finds out near the end of the video. Salinger had a crew of attorneys "discouraging" anyone who mentioned anything about Catcher on the internet.

 

Things seem to have relaxed a bit since his passing, so look for a slightly unusual take on the traditional Google Lit Trip soon.
