Hermetically-sealed Catcher in the Rye author J.D. Salinger sued to prevent some Swedish writer from publishing an updated spinoff version of his book. And Salinger's won, for the moment! What a crock.
J.D. Salinger, now 90 years old and still living in seclusion in New Hampshire, is suing the author and publisher of a "sequel" to Catcher in the Rye, seeking to prevent its publication later this year.
