J.D. Salinger may not be done publishing after all, according to claims in a new film and book set for release next week.
Salinger, who died in 2010 at 91, has been known for a distinguished but scant literary oeuvre that was capped by the enormous success of his 1951 novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
But a forthcoming documentary and related book, both titled Salinger, include detailed assertions that Salinger instructed his estate to publish at least five additional books some of them entirely new, some extending past work in a sequence that he intended to begin as early as 2015. The new books and stories were largely written before Salinger assigned his output to a trust in 2008, and would greatly expand the Salinger legacy. One collection, to be called The Family Glass, would add five new stories to an assembly of previously published stories about the fictional Glass family. — New York Times News Service
