Farewell Mr. Salinger

Pocos autores han habitado el imaginario colectivo de generaciones como J.D.Salinger. Con él, -fallecido ayer a los 91 años en Cornish, donde vivía recluido-, desaparece toda una época y una manera de entender la literatura completamente personal y difícil de emular.

Autor de un puñado de libros pequeños, completamente desprovistos de palabrería, pero llenos de sed de verdad y de rabia adolescente, la obra de Salinger conserva toda su fuerza, su ambigüedad. Cincuenta años después, Salinger todavía hace evidente la mezquindad de un mundo cultural parasitado, como dice Menéndez Salmón, por la palabrería y por los egos.



"I hope to hell that when I do die somebody has the sense to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetary. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody."

Make sure you have written all your certification and license details in your resume,
as it has its own importance. The cover letter is your chance to get personal with your potential employer so
he or she sees more of you than just a piece of paper.

Follow these six steps and you should see an increase in the number
of calls you receive from sending out resumes.

Thank you for sharing these kind of wonderful threads. In addition, the best travel plus medical insurance strategy can often reduce those concerns that come with touring abroad. Any medical crisis can shortly become costly and that’s likely to quickly slam a financial load on the family finances. Putting in place the excellent travel insurance program prior to setting off is well worth the time and effort. Thanks
