Why I’m Worried about Salinger
A Salinger bio is an easy thing to screw up. Fortunately, there are reasons for hope about this latest attempt…
At Least Five New J.D. Salinger Books Said to be Coming
This morning, the The New York Times reports that the book and movie “include detailed assertions that Mr. Salinger instructed his estate to publish at least five books — some of them entirely new, some extending past work — in a sequence that he intended to begin as early as 2015.”
I know this is a silly stunt and I’m three decades past my Catcher in the Rye period, but somehow the idea of a BIG JD Salinger documentary that has some secret twist excites me more than any other movie news out there right now.
Is David Gilbert’s novel & Sons based on the life of J.D. Salinger? Maybe…
The parallels to J.D. Salinger here are obvious. There are other touches throughout the book. Characters crying at the natural history museum. “Fuck You” scrawled on a ceiling. A rain-soaked scene of emotional release at the Central Park carousel.
