This is interesting, I picked up a paperback this weekend called _Salinger_
edited by Henry Antole Grunwald. I started reading it (I normally don't
read much commentary) but last night before going to sleep I stopped at the
beginning of Leslie Fiedler's "Up From Adolescence", thinking as I set my
book down, 'Leslie will be there tommorrow.'

Leslie Fiedler classified Salinger as a "middlebrow writer" in Love and
Death in the American Novel and in a l962 book review of Franny and Zooey
published in Partisan Review ("Up from Adolescence"), Fiedler classified
Salinger as a failed novelist.
