“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.” J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

  1. That is a very true statement. However, I can say with certainty that when/if my novel is to be published, I will make sure to be in contact with those who were followers from before my book was published and some after. Not so they can kiss my rear but rather to tell me the truth of how I can improve, perfection is an unachievable goal, afterall.

  2. I totally agree with the sentiment though not the book you linked it too!! See the link below for more info, though you may cry if you truly love the book. Sorry!

    There are many books I feel the same way about, in-particular: A Fine Balance, by Rohinton Mistry. An absolute masterpiece. Once you’ve read it, the characters will never leave you alone.

  3. I think sometimes when I read a sentence or phrase that is lovely or profund that “How great if I could have written it”.
