For Elizabeth

Coming soon to a bookshelf near you:
"Iowa grad Mary O'Connell's first adult novel, IN THE RYE, wherein Holden Caulfield steps out of the pages of the The Catcher in the Rye and into the life of a high school senior searching Manhattan for her missing American lit teacher who has always regarded Salinger's classic novel as a book of revelations and a roadmap of sorts, to Amy Einhorn at Amy Einhorn Books, in a pre-empt, by Lisa Bankoff at ICM (world)."
I assume this will solve what happened to the English teacher we studied CATCHER IN THE RYE under, who held a similar worldview and who afterward taught no more at our high school.

'The F? Remember when some thought we would get all the unpublished stuff in Salinger's safe after he died? Instead: This.

Plus the estate spent so much legal muscle shooting down a sequel... but this is all right with them?

I bet if Salinger were still alive, there would be some kind of legal action.
