Authors when they were young

Flavorwire has put together an interesting gallery of photos of authors in their young, pre-fame days.

Some drip with irony: a smiling Sylvia Plath, and Jack Kerouac (in a tie!) at Horace Mann. Others are disarmingly cute: Samuel Beckett on his high school cricket team, Madeleine L'Engle in her Smith College yearbook, and J.D. Salinger at military school.

One of the yearbook entries -- for Maurice Sendak -- is prescient. It reads: Your delightful drawings make us all gay/A famous arftist you'll be someday.
