      Fifty years ago this month, The New Yorker published a bizarre short story by J.D. Salinger, author of The Catcher in the Rye, written in the form of a 28,word letter from a seven-year-old child at summer one could know it at the time, but this story was to mark one of the longest and most fascinating silences in literary history. The world is at war, and Stella Jilani is leading a double life. By day she works in the lion’s den as a typist for the Reich; by night, she risks her life as a messenger for the Italian resistance. Against all odds, Stella must impart Nazi secrets, smuggle essential supplies and produce an underground newspaper on her beloved typewriter.

    Building on the atmospherics in The Sign of Four (pp–55), this taps into 19th-century anxieties about the unconscious mind and can also be read as a reference to the idea of the “double life,” a major literary trend of the time featuring in novels such as Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray () and Robert Louis Stevenson’s. Full text of "The library of literary criticism of English and American authors" See other formats.

    Despite Kafka’s tortured perception of his “double life” as a lawyer by day and a writer by night, he was highly respected during his fourteen years () as an analyst of industrial accidents for the Workers’ Accident Insurance Institute for the Kingdom of Bohemia in Prague.   Turkmen novelist Rahim Esenov is in New York today to receive a major award highlighting literary freedom around the globe. The fact that year-old Esenov will be on hand to accept the PEN.
