No Salinger is no Mozart. Philip Glass is a composer I like, he doesn't have
the genius at all of Mozart, but the very specific thing he does I
appreciate very much. He works within very limited parameters to make his
repetitive magic. In much the same way I appreciate Salinger with Catcher
and Nine Stories, working in his limited way to accomplish really something
very nice and polished. He is not a master and can't write like Homer,
Dante, Shakespeare, Dickens, Tolstoy, Melville, Conrad, or Faulkner, yet
he has done some nice things.
