Dream Catcher: A Memoir


Product Description
Product Details


The Washington Post Has just about everything you'd look for in a Salinger story. Clear writing. Edgy characters. A dash of death. A pinch of sex. A dollop of loneliness. And lots and lots of weirdness.
People A controversial, emotionally charged memoir.
John Leonard CBS News Sunday Morning Margaret A. Salinger has written a memoir that would break the heart even if her father weren't the reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye. Maybe there's a gene for splendid prose.
The New York Times Salinger's daughter's truths are as mesmerizing as his fiction....There is information here that can't help altering, and enlarging, our estimation of Salinger's work....This memoir may well prompt a reassessment of the place of Salinger's fiction in American literature, and add a dimension to the marginalized mystic he's become to many.
Buffalo Art News I found myself gaining personal insights from this book that applied to me both as a son and as a father. I could not ask for much more than that. There are, I believe, lessons here for all of us.
The Telegraph (UK) Salinger's writing is vivid and strong.
USA Today An unprecedented look at one of the country's most admired and reclusive writers.
The Jerusalem Report Peggy's diverse achievements and experience make Dream Catcher unlike any memoir...darkly comic.
Richmond Times-Dispatch (VA) By fathering Margaret, or Peggy, America's best-known creator of precocious fictional siblings begot a daughter with a level of brilliance and moral fiber that has proved capable of taking on both the challenge of the flesh-and-blood J. D. Salinger and the mystique he has gone to vast lengths to cultivate....A master interpreter of her father's work, Peggy skillfully balances her incisive readings of the stories with her father's motives and behaviors. What makes it so remarkable is the brilliance with which, in describing the process of winning her own salvation, the author deconstructs the Salinger myth.
Academic Writing Review Margaret A. Salinger's work shows the brilliance of what can happen when a woman's way of seeing is adroitly applied to a man's writing....Rarely does a memoir do so much to make readers reconsider a body of fiction by a well-known writer....This memoir has become one of the best books to surface in the world of Salinger criticism.
