"At the end of my freshman year of college, back in 1936, I flunked five out of five subjects..."
I find it quite surprising that I've never read this short story by J.D. Salinger until now. A dear friend told me he was in the middle of reading it again as we chatted, he's a Salinger enthusiast, and so, realizing that I had never read it, I decided to look it up. You can find anything online these days, even full works by popular writers. I've added a click through button that will lead to a full version of the short story if anyone would like to read it, for the first time or once again. Although I had not read it yet, I did recognize this particular line: "She wasn't doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together." I'm not sure where I'd have read it before, but it intrigues me. Just thought I'd share.
