Salinger was one of the agency''s biggest clients and, as the year goes on, Joanna begins to form a relationship with him and his fans. volume of post sent for him is overwhelming, and there is a rote response Joanna is meant to use.
Yet the poignancy of these letters from fans, ranging from veterans to students, gets to Joanna, and she modifies her responses, acting as Salinger''s mouthpiece. Intertwined with this is the story of her personal life: her anti-establishment boyfriend, Don; living on a shoestring; friends getting married and moving away.
It''s a magnificent portrait of a fascinating year; a pleasure to read.
