Salinger’s agent. The mythical author decides he wants to publish a book more than thirty years after his last one. In spite of his long absence, Salinger still receives thousands letters from obsessive fans who all want the same thing: to make contact with him. It’s Joanna’s job to make sure they never do by sending a drab, corporate response. But reading the fan letters sends her on an emotional journey as she starts to respond personally to some of them. As time go by, Joanna is forced to ask herself if she wants to work in the publishing
