Salinger surfaces for a suit

Reclusive author, J.D. Salinger is suing an author by the pen name John David California who penned a sequel to his magnum opus Catcher in the Rye.  The new book, titled 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye, features a 76 year-old man named Mr. C. (presumably Holden Caufield), after he escapes from a retirement home.  The novel is dedicated to Salinger, who even makes a cameo appearance.

If it makes it, the novel will be published in Britain in the summer and the U.S. in the fall.

ech. don't mess with a good thing. That's like messing with Pride and Prejudice. (Though, I will admit I would like to read the zombie version...)
