Salinger.org

It's not like he's going to break his silence with a Twitter feed). This one is a forum for all things Salinger-related. It's not that pretty to look at, but contains useful information.

Salinger: Uncollected Writings

This website contains e-text of virtually all of Salinger's work, from The Catcher in the Rye to his little-known and unpublished stories.

Catcher in the Rye Quiz

Test your knowledge of the book with this About.com quiz. (If you've read this biography and still can't answer the first question, please get off our website. You need more help than we can offer you.)

The Catcher in the Rye, Brit-style

The Guardian, a U.K. newspaper, has helpfully and hilariously condensed the entire text into a few paragraphs, complete with British slang. Read this for laughs, but we can't quite recommend that you use it as a study guide.

American Museum of Natural History

Holden says that inside this New York institution, "it always smelled like it was raining outside, even if it wasn't, and you were in the only nice, dry, cosy place in the world." This is completely true. The deer and the Indians are still there, only now there's a cool website to help you plan your visit as well.

Holden's Tour of New York

Want to retrace his steps? Here's a handy itinerary of the places Caulfield visited on his three-day tour of New York. Check out the lousy show at Rockefeller Center, the spooky wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and all the goddamn phonies on Fifth Avenue.
