A lost catcher

I vaguely remember reading "Catcher in the Rye" and I have no idea what's it's about. But I found this Letter to the Editor in the New York Times very appropo (JD Salinger - the author - passed away recently and was known for being a recluse).
To the Editor:

J. D. Salinger dies, and everyone is commenting on what his writing means to them, to us all, on what it means, period. They are happy to explain it.

I wonder if this is the sort of thing he couldn’t stand.
