Another Catcher in the Rye sequel is in the works.
From the Guardian:
O'Connell's In the Rye, in which "Holden 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 who has always regarded Salinger's classic novel as a book of revelations and a roadmap of sorts", was acquired by Penguin's US imprint Amy Einhorn Books, reported book rights news website Publishers Marketplace and the New York Times.
1. I find the write-up of the premise totally confusing.
2. How long do you think it'll be before Salinger's literary executors—or whoever is in charge of these things—attempt to put the kibosh on it? (Or do you think they'll let it fly?)
