To quote the fabulous Ms. P:
Dame Vivienne Westwood (I know, who knew that she had been knighted!) talks about Catcher in the Rye in this month’s UK Elle. I cannot find the full text but one article about her says “However it is not the only novel she is interested in – she believes J. D. Salinger’s ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ is an important piece for all teenagers. She told Britain’s ELLE magazine: “The American outlook is very useful and interesting because America’s been such an important influence on the way we all think.”
I also have not been able to find the full article, but I did find Dame Vivienne’s blog – Get A Life – and a post that inserts a page from the Elle article in which she discusses her favorite books including “The Catcher in the Rye.”
Bron also recommended this song, titled “The Catcher in the Rye” by Datarock, a Norwegian electro band. It’s pretty awesome.
