I guess it has been only a year. He'd been in hiding for so long that it seems like longer.I too have a fondness for old black and white photographs and even movies and television programs. It somehow makes things more surreal.
There are classic films I can't imagine in anything other than black & white - especially Humphrey Bogart movies.
I love old B&W films but could never 'get' "Catcher in the Rye"
It's been 30 years or so since I read it. I should probably re-read it because I really identified with Holden Caulfield at the time. I remember I was living in Los Angeles and was in a club with friends. A club-rat sauntered by and I said, "He's such a PHONY." Another in our group was angry with me for saying so: "How do YOU know???" I answered, "because I'm reading Catcher in the Rye."Oh.
I went to a second tier prep school similar to the one Holden attends, and even though it was later, many things still rang true in his depictions.But I think I like his Glass family stories better.weirsdo
It's been such a long time, but now I'm inspired to rediscover him.
