Culture: The author of the unsanctioned “Catcher in the Rye” sequel responds!

  • The backstory J.D. Salinger wrote this book called “Catcher in the Rye” that’s required reading for high schoolers and became a recluse. Then, he came out of hiding to file a lawsuit against some guy writing a new book about the book’s protagonist, 60 years later.
  • The defense Saying “I am not a pirate,” the author, Fredrik Colting, claims in a court brief that he’s not ripping off the author but critically analyzing his work – specifically, the relationship between Holden Caulfield and the reclusive author who inspired him. source
