Noo! Catcher is one of my favorites, come up with something else! Or even just naming it differently would be better…

101 Books

J.D. Salinger has never been keen on allowing other writers to draw from The Catcher in the Rye. A few years ago, Salinger won a lawsuit that barred an author from publishing in the United States after he penned a novel featuring Holden Caulifield as an old man.

Salinger died in 2010, but I doubt his lawyers will think too highly of Mary O’ Connell, a young adult author who recently landed a deal with Amy Einhorn Books to publish In The Rye. Publisher’s Marketplace describes the novel this way:  “Caulfield steps out of the pages of The Catcher in the Rye and into the life of a high school senior searching Manhattan for her missing American lit teacher.”

Meh. One big fat meh.
