"Gin a body meet a body / Comin thro' the rye" the Catcher turns 60

Salinger collectionCatcher in the Rye was first published sixty years ago today, July 16, 1951. Since then, over 65 million copies sold (maybe, because many people, like myself, seem to have two or more copies). Catcher is actually my least favorite of Salinger's works (listed below). I have a special fondness for "Seymour".
