Wow. Where in the world did you get this?

And from what I've learned recently, that smile is very characteristic. For such a deep and poetic soul, he loved him some pretty ladies.

Actually Tom, I was wondering that too. After Salinger died I searched high and low through Public Library and University Archives, Library of Congress, etc and came up blank.

As Salinger later explained, "I may be a recluse but I'm not an idiot."

Awesome post!
This is, hands down, my favorite blog to haunt, and JD is my favorite author. I was so excited to see this picture posted because it stems from my hometown of Jacksonville, Fl where he was visiting actress Elaine Joyce (pictured) while she was performing at the Alhambra Dinner Theater in 1992. They were "dating" through correspondence, but this was the first time they met. My favorite blog, author, and city included in one post...Thanks!!
