In the winter of 1996, twenty-three-year-old Joanna Rakoff moves to New York City, taking a job as assistant to the literary agent for J. D. Salinger. Tasked with answering Salinger's fan mail, she finds herself unable to type the agency's formulaic response and begins writing back. My Salinger Year is a poignant, keenly observed and irresistibly funny memoir about a pre-digital world on the cusp of vanishing. It is the coming-of-age story of a talented writer and testament to the power of books to shape our lives.
