Paula Danziger - London Times Obituary

The opening paragraph gives the flavour of this peculiarly disdainful obit.

HOLDEN CAULFIELD, in The Catcher in the Rye, has a lot to answer for. Certainly he was not the first American adolescent to commune with his readership about the weight of his woes, but his arrival in 1951 was to inspire a new generation of writers to the exploitation of tales told in a teenage demotic. The lucrative literary sub-genre of young adult fiction became fashionable, and prominent among its exponents, and with an eye fixed upon girl readers, was Paula Danziger.
