Salinger and Sex
I've come across two really interesting essays on the sexual character of Salinger's published and published-but-rigorously-out-of-print writings. This post on the LRB blog offers a theory of the real meaning of "bananafish". This article in Slate extrapolates from a little known hot and sexy essay that Salinger wanted to write about sex and perhaps did until he died. Fascinating.
