We learned this week that there are indeed (as speculated by many) unpublished works by J.D. Salinger, and that we will be seeing them in print over the next several years. How’s that for liteary excitement? There is an article in the NY Times that describes what we might expect. I’ve gotta admit I’m looking forward to seeing what has been kept under wraps “all these years,” though I doubt my hopes of a complete volume of stories featuring “The Laughing Man” will be realized, however… 🙂
How do you feel about this revelation? Are you looking forward to some new Salinger for the first time in decades? If you had your choice which story or character would you like to see further explored?

“He’s going to have a second act unlike any writer in history. “There’s no precedent for this.” – filmmaker Shane Salerno,director of the documentary, “Salinger,” to be released next month.
