The Salinger Contract - Adam Langer - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Salinger Contract:

Finding inspiration in Salinger's Art.

My favorite Adam Langer quote from the book:

"The story's what matters; spelling's overrated."

Questions to ponder while reading The Salinger Contract:

Should anyone other than the criminal bear responsibility for crimes?

Should books be banned because they can be inspiring?

My thoughts about The Salinger Contract:

In spite of the questions raised, this is a "fun" book, not a "deep" book.

Easy to get into, easy to stay with.
