Don’t Touch Holden

The reclusive author J.D. Salinger issued a lawsuit targeting a ‘rip-off’ of his classic novel Catcher in the Rye.

Lawyers for Salinger filed suit in federal court this week to stop the publication, sale and advertisement of “60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye,” a novel written by an author calling himself J.D. California and published by a Swedish company that advertises joke books and a “sexual dictionary” on its Web site.

Interestingly, the article also notes that Mr. Salinger once turned down Steven Spielberg’s offer to make a movie of his classic novel (news to me!).
