Found on the R Train:

...a torn page from J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories with these lines circled:

This is the squalid, or moving part of the story, and the scene changes. The people change, too. I'm still around, but from here on in, for reasons I'm not at liberty to disclose, I've disguised myself so cunningly that even the cleverest reader will fail to recongize me.

how odd. i just found a used copy of this at the thrift store yesterday and stayed up half the night reading it.

this is the really spooky part: when i went to bed last night to resume reading, i was in the middle of the "for esme, with love and squalor" story, and that sentence was right after where i had left off reading the night before.
