J.D. Salinger’s 1946 Letter to Hemingway

The 1946 letter that Catcher in the Rye author, J.D. Salinger wrote to Ernest Hemingway back in 1946 was on display at the JFK Library outside of Boston. Here is the transcript between one of my favorite NPR radio host, Scott Simon and Tom Putnam, director of the JFK Library, who oversees the Hemingway collection. There is also the 3 1/2 minute audio version at the top of the article.

Here is the actual letter if your interested in reading it. Enjoy!
