Tucked away in a collection of J.D. Salinger's"Nine Short Stories" is a work of fiction I've always liked: "Down at the Dinghy." When I read the story for the first time, maybe five years after it was first published (perhaps sometime in the early 1950s), the thought occurred to me that some mysterious sea change had taken place in our literary culture when I wasn't looking.
