This book was fascinating in a lot of ways--I didn't realize, for instance, that Salinger was kind of easily sucked into "cult-like" practices. Then again, about midway through the book, I started to very very deeply hate the author (his daughter) and all her whining and boohooing and woe-is-me-ing. So much of it was interesting, but Margaret Salinger just really needs to suck it up and not be so self-pitying and melodramatic. I don't doubt that Salinger was probably a bastard sometimes as a dad, but it's really too bad he didn't have a daughter who was a bit more resilient and who could've written a memoir that didn't feel like such a pity-party the whole goddamn time.
