FAST FOOD ANNALS

To commemorate the first anniversary of JD Salinger's death, the University of East Anglia has put 50 letters and four postcards, written by the legendary author on display.

They were sent to Donald Hartog, a friend of Salinger's who lived in London--and they showed a side of the reclusive writer never before known. Hartog's daughter donated them to the university after her father died in 2007.

He enjoyed gardening.

He liked the Three Tenors (Jose Carreras was his favorite).

He closely followed the tennis career of Tim Henman.

And his favorite fast food restaurant was Burger King.

Professional mess Amy Winehouse seems to enjoy KFC:



David Hasselhoff (who actually isn't huge in Germany) also loves burgers--JUST LIKE JD SALINGER! Amazing!



See what I did here? JD Salinger? Keywords: Salinger, Burger King, Hasselhoff, Whopper? Oh God, kill me now.
