Bud's View: Pa. once again 'Elk Country'

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 by BUD COLE Special to The Press in Focus

Although Salinger published short stories, including "Franny and Zooey" (1961), following the publication of "Catcher" in 1951 he retreated from the media glare of New York City to Cornish, N.H., where he continued to write in his "bunker," publishing his last short story in 1965,...

The results are a whirlwind of mirth.

Barlieb flips the script by aggressively casting females in the male roles and...
