Salinger, Upcoming Documentary About Reclusive Author J. D. Salinger

Salinger is an upcoming documentary about the reclusive author, J. D. Salinger. Written and directed by Shane Salerno, the film has been shrouding in secrecy during its nine years in production—the project’s very existence was concealed until 2010, the year J. D. Salinger died. The film tells the tale of Salinger’s life through interviews with his friends and contemporaries, from the author’s traumatic experiences during World War II to his decades of seclusion after the success of his 1951 novel, The Catcher in the Rye. Salinger will be released on September 6, 2013.
