JD Salinger's books are finally going digital

J.D. Salinger books to be released Author J.D. Salinger Works To Be Released In E-Book Format For The First Time

This week, in the first step of a broader revival that could reshape the world's understanding of J.D. Salinger and his writing, Little, Brown is publishing digital editions of his four books, making him perhaps the last 20th-century literary icon to surrender to the digital revolution.

In addition to "The Catcher in the Rye", the e-books include "Nine Stories", "Franny and Zooey", and "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction".

Then in the fall, with Matt Salinger's help, the New York Public Library will host the first public exhibition from J.D. Salinger's personal archives, which will feature letters, family photographs and the typescript for "The Catcher in the Rye" with the author's handwritten edits, along with about 160 other items.

While the books will be published digitally this week, they won't be accompanied by an audio edition - Salinger "abhorred the idea of his books being performed or interpreted in any way in another medium", according to his son.

Salinger has spent years trying to respect the privacy of his father, who passed away nearly ten years ago and was known for his reclusive habits.

Holden Caulfield is finally joining the digital age. "Things like e-books and audiobooks are tough, because he clearly didn't want them".

He began to reconsider the idea, though, about five years ago, when a woman wrote to him about a disability that makes it hard for her to read printed books. But he says many readers use e-books exclusively and some people with disabilities can only use e-books, so "we decided it was time".

"He would want people to come to it with no preconceptions", Matt Salinger said.

J.D. Salinger's son, Matt Salinger, has made a decision to release the classic novel, along with three more of his father's works, as eBooks, Deadline is reporting. Matt Salinger also plans to release decades worth of unpublished writing, but that will take several years to accomplish.

"I wanted people to know that yes, he did keep writing, there's a lot of material, and yes, it will be published", he told the Times.
