My Salinger Year

Joanna Smith Rakoff

At twenty-three, after leaving graduate school to pursue her dreams of becoming a poet, Joanna Rakoff moves to New York City and takes a job as assistant to the storied literary agent for J. D. Salinger. She spends her days in the plush, wood-panelled agency, where Dictaphones and typewriters still reign and old-time agents doze at their desks after martini lunches, and at night she goes home to the tiny, threadbare Brooklyn apartment she shares with her socialist boyfriend. Precariously balanced between glamour and poverty, surrounded by titanic personalities and struggling to trust her own artistic sense, Joanna is given the task of answering Salingers voluminous fan mail. But as she reads the candid, heart-wrenching letters from his readers around the world, she finds herself unable to type out the agencys decades-old form response. Instead, drawn inexorably into the emotional world of Salingers devotees, she abandons the template and begins writing back. Poignant, keenly observed and irresistibly funny, My Salinger Year is a memoir about literary New York in the late 1990s, a pre-digital world on the cusp of vanishing, where a young woman finds herself swept into one of the last great stories and entangled with one of the last great figures of the century. Above all, it is the coming-of-age story of a talented writer and a testament to the universal power of books to shape our lives.

My Salinger Year looks beautiful – until reading the credits, this reviewer didn’t realise it was shot in Montreal rather than in New York. The costume and set design are delightful and work to heighten the nostalgic 1990s atmosphere, skilfully reinforcing the theme of an analogue world about to be overthrown by the digital age.


The much-anticipated new film by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Philippe Falardeau ('Monsieur Lazhar'), MY SALINGER YEAR unites three-time Oscar®-nominee Sigourney Weaver and radiant new talent Margaret Qualley ('Once Upon A Time… in Hollywood') for a hugely enjoyable adaptation of Joanna Rakoff’s internationally bestselling memoir.It’s the mid-90s: idealistic twenty ...
