Biography claims new Salinger books to be published
NEW YORK CITY, New York (AFP) - A new documentary and biography claim that American author J.D. Salinger, who died in 2010, left detailed instructions for at least five new books to be published after his death.
The reclusive author of Catcher In The Rye last published in 1965, and lived in seclusion in New Hampshire in the north-eastern United States until his death nearly five decades later aged 91.
While those close to him said he continued to write, what he was working on has long been shrouded in mystery.
The New York Times on Sunday reported that a new documentary and book, both titled Salinger, include detailed assertions that Mr Salinger left orders for his estate to publish at least five additional books.
