At Home in the World: A Memoir

Voorkant
Macmillan, 15 aug. 1998 - 347 pagina's
In the spring of 1972, when she was a freshman at Yale, Joyce Maynard wrote a cover story for The New York Times Magazine about life as a young person in the sixties. Among the hundreds of letters she received in response was one from the famously reclusive author J.D. Salinger. They embarked on a correspondence. Within months she had left college and moved in with him - believing, despite their thirty-five-year age difference, that she had found her soulmate and that they would be together always. Shortly before the publication of Looking Back, the book she wrote over the course of her time with him, Salinger sent Maynard away - an event so devastating that she herself retreated from the world for two years in a New Hampshire farmhouse. At Home in the World explores the story of Maynard's family, her relationship with Salinger, and the way the legendary writer's influence, along with that of her parents, reverberated through her life in the decades that followed. In these pages, she chronicles her painful reentry into the world, her development as a writer, her marriage, her struggle to become a healthy parent to her own children, the death of her parents, and the years, following the end of her marriage, when she set out to rebuild her life.
