tatters - I understood your post. Chapman thought he was a hypocrite but Lennon was not a hypocrite I was trying to make that point.

Speaking of the Salinger film, more books by the author are on the way....

Film on Salinger Claims More Books Are Coming

LOS ANGELES — J. D. Salinger may not be done publishing after all, according to claims in a new film and book set for release next week.

Mr. Salinger, who died in 2010 at the age of 91, has been known for a distinguished but scant literary oeuvre that was capped by the enormous success of his 1951 novel, “The Catcher in the Rye.”

But a forthcoming documentary and related book, both titled “Salinger,” include detailed assertions that Mr. Salinger instructed his estate to publish at least five additional books — some of them entirely new, some extending past work — in a sequence that he intended to begin as early as 2015.

The new books and stories were largely written before Mr. Salinger assigned his output to a trust in 2008, and would greatly expand the Salinger legacy.

I hated all I had to read in school until Salinger´s "Catcher in the Rye" appeared - and I loved it....

Catcher In The Rye was a load of shit. One of the most hyped and yet totally unrewarding books I have ever read. Wish I hadn't bothered.

This is STILL considered by his publisher to be his "current" official photo. It was taken in 1951.

If JD Salinger had never existed John Lennon would still be alive - not confrontational , just an observation

I don't see the point of mentioning in the same sentence a great talent and a 4th rate songwritter. Salinger was spared the burden of having a Yoko around his neck. He kept his life AWAY from mass-medias whereas LennonOno couldn't take a crap without calling a TV crew.

Don't you think it's wonderful that in the Twitter webonanist age there's NO recent pic of J.D. thumbs up
Thomas Pynchon keep on being elusive! winking smiley

Never thought of John Lennon as a 4th rate songwriter....confused smiley

I saw the "new and improved" version of the movie over the weekend. It still wasn't very good.

Salinger was a great writer for his time, and the documentary and the book (I was sent an advance copy) are a mess. Always someone out there who swears their respect for the person they want to make a buck off.

I'm not expecting much from the five "new" Salinger novels to be published because Truman Capote (who worked as an office boy at The New Yorker Magazine before he was published in it) said in the book Conversations with Capote:

INTERVIEWER: "Why do you suppose Salinger stopped writing?"

CAPOTE: "I'm told on very good authority, that he hasn't stopped writing at all. That he's written at least five or six short novels and that all of them have been turned down by The New Yorker and that he won't publish anywhere except in The New Yorker. And that all of them are very strange and all about Zen Buddhism."
