“One doesn’t bring the degree of obsession that creates perfection unless there is just unappeasable hunger, unappeasable sadness and what I would call a wound. You don’t get that kind of perfection unless you’re trying to heal something that is incredibly, badly hurt.”

– David Shields, Biographer on J. D. Salinger
