The Sun's David Zurawik talks about the director's cut of 'Salinger' on PBS's 'American Masters,' on WYPR FM's 'Take on Television.'
"American Masters" drills deep tonight on the life of J.D. Salinger, author of "The Catcher in the Rye."
While it is filled with literary worship for the 1951 novel, it also takes a hard look at a troubled personal life that included a nervous breakdown, a marriage to a German woman believed to have been raised a Nazi and an attraction to adolescent girls that he acted on more than once.
Check out this podcast from my radio preview for WYPR-FM.
"Salinger" airs at 9 tonight on MPT (channels 22 and 67).
