Annotation

Recounts the known meetings and correspondence between the two authors and briefly examines Hemingway’s influence on Salinger’s early writings. McDuffie seeks to dispel the reductive chicken myth that pervades scholarly work on their relationship and explains the seemingly unfavorable reference toward Hemingway in The Catcher in the Rye (1951) as misunderstood and unrepresentative of Salinger’s opinion of the author.
