Yours for $1 million, maybe even less: J.D. Salinger’s toilet
It’s almost as if “The Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger saw this moment coming in 1953 when he retreated in growing distress about his own fame to small-town New Hampshire and became a notorious recluse.
Salinger’s toilet, the ultimate symbol of privacy for a man notorious for defending his, is being auctioned on eBay.
A well-known memorabilia and collectibles dealer based in Kernersville who has stalked Salinger items for years is asking the standard eBay hey-look-at-this-bizarre-thing-I’ve-got price of $1 million but said he’s open to reasonable offers.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
