    What a lousy writer. A mean bastard too. He lived near our summer place and I am friends with a member of his family. I could tell stories.

    He may been a poor human being, but a lousy writer he was not. Maybe you have to be a male to appreciate Catcher in the Rye. I guess that explains why most of the girls that have borrowed it from me didn't like it that much. :lol:

    Raise High the Roofbeam was bearable. He was a schlock writer, IMO. I know women who liked it and men who hated it.

    I'm a male, I read it, I thought it was one of the worst novels I'd ever read in my entire life.
