This chronicle of one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers, J.D. Salinger, begins as he embarks on his writing career and enters into a tumultuous relationship with young starlet Oona O’Neill. What appears to be a promising start to a career turns into a nightmare when the United States enters World War II. After enlisting, Salinger experiences the horrors of war across the battlefields of Europe, where he begins to pen what would become his iconic novel, The Catcher in the Rye—a work that would forever change the country and its author.
