Booklicious: J.D. Salinger Was an Ass

September 15, 2011


To his maid, at least. The writing's a bit hard to read, so here's the transcription:

Dear Mary —

Please make sure all the errands are done before you go on vacation, as I do not want to be bothered with insignificant things.

Thank you,
J.D. Salinger

Pony up $50,000 and you can have the pleasure of shaking your fist at this letter in person — it's up for auction on eBay. (It's a far better deal than that toilet.)
