The past 5 of September was released in America Shane Salerno's documentary Salinger. According to IMDB: an unprecedented look inside the private world of J.D. Salinger, the reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye. You can read a lot of opinios on the Internet but there is this very complete piece by Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker that simply tries to answer: Who was J.D. Salinger? and in doing it so, might point out some inaccuracies of Salerno's film. 'There are certain artists, and some art, that become so popular that everyone peers into them, finding whatever they will, however they will'. Salinger was one of them. Read the article here.

No one joins Facebook to be sad and lonely. But research into the alienating nature of the Internet—and Facebook in particular, and a new study from the University of Michigan psychologist Ethan Kross argues that that might be exactly how it makes us feel.  Do you want to know why? Read this article in The New Yorker.

I selfie, therefore I am, it's an interesting article in Dazed Magazine about the selfie,  the on-the-go medium of self-celebration and envy, and a form of self-portrait accessible to everyman and everywoman – as long has he or she has a smartphone, and also, an A-Z guide. Have a look here.
