Back Cover:

'My childhood was a world that dangled between dream and nightmare on a gossamer thread my parents wove, without the reality of solid ground to catch a body should he or she fall'

A famously idiosyncratic recluse, few have come close enough to the author of the seminal Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Sallinger, to learn the truth behind the tales of his eccentricity. Margaret, his daughter, is one of those few. Offering a rare look into the man and the myth, her story chronicles a childhood of extreme isolation and early neglect, interwoven with times of laughter, joy and dazzling beauty. In a quest to come to terms with a past that, quite literally, nearly killed her, Margaret A. Salinger explores the complex dynamics of family relationships and delves into her father's life before her birth. The story of being a Salinger is unique; that of struggling to separate who they are from who their parents dreamed they might be is universal.
