The Passing of an Era Here in New York

JD Salinger 1919 - 2010

Louis Auchincloss 1917 - 2010

Two very different writers who described two very different New Yorks. Those two cities passed away long before they did.

I love the writings of Louis Auchinloss! Though we had to read Salinger, I fell in love with Auchinloss' writings.

Oooh, I had no idea about Louis Auchincloss' passing...R.I.P. I was reading his Collected Stories last night, which I'd found recently in a used bookstore in my town. I love his book, "Rector of Justin."
