The Catcher in the Rye is one of the most read books in the world which made the reclusive nature if its author J.D. Salinger (1919-2010) even more amazing. The new documentary Salinger that will be released on September 6th looks into his life and what might have been behind his decision to shun public life. It features over 150 interviews with his friends and those he inspired, some of which you can see in the trailer below. Definitely add it to your must see list for fall 2013. And maybe pull your copy of The Catcher in the Rye off the shelf for one more read.
“I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It's nice.”
