Paris Review — What I Did Last Summer


Paris Review — What I Did Last Sum­mer: “Bet­ty Eppes is a reporter for the Baton Rouge Advo­cate. In the spring of 1980 she was a Spe­cial Assign­ments Writer for the ‘Fun’ sec­tion which appears in both the Advo­cate and the State Times, the morn­ing and after­noon papers respec­tive­ly. That spring she decid­ed to spend her sum­mer vaca­tion try­ing to inter­view J.D. Salinger, the author famous for his reclu­sive behav­ior. Her sto­ry appeared in the Sun­day Advo­cate mag­a­zine sec­tion on June 29, 1980, and in syn­di­ca­tion in a num­ber of oth­er news­pa­pers includ­ing the Boston Globe. What fol­lows is a far fuller account of her expe­ri­ence which has been arranged from con­ver­sa­tions held with Ms. Eppes by G.A.P.”
