Summary
"In her memoir, Margaret A. Salinger writes about life with her famously reclusive father, J. D. Salinger - offering a rare look into the man and the myth, what it is like to be his daughter, and the effect of such a charismatic figure on the girls and women closest to him." "Her story chronicles an almost cultlike environment of extreme isolation and early neglect interwoven with times of laughter, joy, and dazzling beauty. She also delves into her parents' lives before her own birth, illuminating their childhoods, their wrenching experiences during World War II, and above all the seeds real-life inspirations for J. D. Salinger's literary preoccupation with "phonies," protracted innocence, precocious children, and spiritual perfection." "Ms. Salinger explores the complex dynamics of family relationships. Her story is one that seeks to come to terms with the dark parts of her life that, quite literally, nearly killed her, and to pass on a life-affirming heritage to her own child." "The story of being a Salinger is unique; the story of being a daughter is universal. This book appeals to anyone, J. D. Salinger fan or no, who has ever had to struggle to sort out who she really is from who her parents dreamed she might be."--BOOK JACKET
