Salinger - Unpublished J.d. Salinger Books Set For Release

Unseen stories by iconic writer J.D. Salinger are to be published for the first time, five years after his death, according to an upcoming biopic.

The reclusive author achieved legendary status for penning 1951 classic The Catcher in the Rye, but it was the only novel he ever published prior to his death in 2010.

Although he released 13 short stories in addition to his novel, rumours have swirled for years that a secret file of unpublished Salinger works is stored at his home in Cornish, New Hampshire, and now producers of a new movie claim the books are to be released.

The biopic, which is titled Salinger and is due out next month (Sep13) in conjunction with a book about the writer, contains allegations the author left instructions with the executors of his estate to publish five works in 2015.

At least one of the stories is said to feature the character of Holden Caulfield, the infamous anti-hero of The Catcher in the Rye.

Screenwriter Shane Salerno, who has worked on the upcoming movie, tells The New York Times, "He's going to have a second act unlike any writer in history. There's no precedent for this."
