'My Salinger Year'

Hosted by

When she was 23, Joanna Rakoff left grad school in London and moved to New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a poet. Despite being what she calls, “the only bookish, angry, misfit American teenager to have graduated from high school without reading Catcher in the Rye,” Rakoff gets a job at the literary agency that handles JD Salinger. And one of her duties is answering the secretive author’s fan mail.
