In case you haven't heard the news yet, J.D. Salinger has died. While it didn't come as a complete shock because he was 91-years-old, it is still upsetting. To me, his novel The Catcher in the Rye was the first book I truly loved reading. If this classic got you hooked on reading too, then get this Pencey Prep The Catcher in the Rye t-shirt.
J.D. Salinger is a reclusive American author best known for his controversial book The Catcher in the Rye (1951). Although many people tried to ban it for vulgar language and immoral content, it gradually became more acceptable throughout the years and it has ultimately become a classic. The novel tells the firsthand account of Holden Caulfield, a rebellious teenager who aimlessly travels around New York City after failing out of Pencey Prep. Holden's journey triggers various revelations about life. This Pencey Prep shirt will help bring back memories of your rebellious years, or it will at least bring back memories of reading J.D. Salinger's book.
"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be." ~ Holden Caulfield
