J.D. Salinger New books

"Salinger," a new documentary by filmmaker Shane Salerno, will announce to the world this September that a number of previously-unseen novels from the reclusive author J.D. Salinger are set to be published between 2015 and 2020.

Salinger, best known for his classic novel 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye, stopped publishing in the mid-1960s and spent the next half century living a life of solitude in rural New Hampshire. Salinger died in 2010 at the age of 91.

The New York Times reports that the upcoming documentary will reveal that 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The film will also reveal countless unpublished photos of Salinger's personal life. Watch the trailer for the film below:
