Claims for new J.D. Salinger titles in 2015

27th August 2013 - Foyles

A new book on J. D. Salinger by author David Shields and filmmaker Shane Salerno claims to have discovered what works the famously reclusive author created after his withdrawal from publishing new work.

In addition they claim that this includes returning figures such as Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye and the Glass family from Franny and Zooey and that the new titles will be released in 2015. The book does not identify a prospective publisher.

Shield and Salerno's book, Salinger, is due to be published internationally by Simon & Schuster on 3rd September and accompanies a documentary film about the writer's life. Although it did not have the cooperation of the Salinger estate, run by Salinger's son Matt and his widow, Coleen O'Neill, it draws on extensive material and interviews with many who knew Salinger personally. The project has taken 8 years to complete and the film will be released by the Weinstein Company on 6th September.

According to the Guardian the book's authors cite "two independent and separate sources" who they say have "documented and verified" the information. Salinger made it clear that he wrote everyday but only to "satisfy himself".
