Salinger Sues To Block Catcher Sequel

“Author JD Salinger is taking legal action to block the publication of a book billed as a follow-up to his classic novel The Catcher in the Rye. According to legal papers filed in New York, the 90-year-old’s lawyers called the book a ‘rip-off pure and simple’. 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye features someone similar to Holden Caulfield from Salinger’s work, which he says only he is able to use.”
