JD SALINGER

Are there more novels by JD Salinger yet to be discovered?

Very possibly. The swamis at The Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Society, Salinger’s spiritual home during his Silent Years, have donated some of the author’s letters to the Morgan Library.

These letters reveal much about Salinger’s mindset after The Catcher in the Rye. Salinger retreated from the world….and turned to eastern philosophy. Some believe this was an attempt to find relief from his post-war nervous breakdown, or what is now called PTSD. And….these newly uncovered letters suggest Salinger may have completed at least two additional novels.
