One of the greatest and one of the most banned novels of the twentieth century . . . two reasons to love and miss him

And now we know that "60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye" will be available to be legally sold in the US in 2081.

There's something ... very wrong with copyright law.

My grandson will be 75 in 2081... the good news is he will be able to read Catcher on his future iPad because his grandpa downloaded them....

Book banning (by whatever "legal" means), is not something I support.

I understand that while Salinger hadn't been publishing, he had been writing. My guess is that within a year or so some new Salinger works will start appearing in print.

Last night's Newsnight discussion about him was quite amusing ('rumpus room in the woods'...). The consensus was - don't hold out hopes for anything readable.
