One of the best books I’ve read this year is My Salinger Year, Joanna Rakoff’s memoir of working in a literary agency in the 1990s. I was sold by the description when Bloomsbury emailed me (thanks for the review copy, Bloomsbury!) but it might have languished on my shelves unread if Victoria, my Shiny New Books co-editor hadn’t enthused about it.
So, ladies and gentlemen, I have not one, not two, but three My Salinger Year links!
1.) I’ve reviewed it over at Vulpes Libris today.
2.) Victoria reviewed it at Shiny New Books.
3.) Best for last – Victoria interview Joanna Rakoff for Shiny New Books, and I think it’s the best thing we’ve had there yet. Great questions, thoughtful answers – definitely go and read it!
