This Friday marks the first anniversary of J.D. Salinger's death. Oh, my God, I salute you, Jerry!
So what's the deal with Harold Ober Associates? Their literary agency is mum on the subject of Salinger. We don't know if Salinger has books coming out in the future or not. We don't know if he wrote a will demanding 50 years of silence before publication or not. We deserve an explanation, and one year is more than long enough to wait. If they don't release some sort of announcement on Friday the 28th, indicating if there IS anything or if NEW BOOKS exist or if they don't, there will be consequences. How simple is that? DO THEY OR DON'T THEY. EXIST or NOT EXIST. SUM. NON SUM. Eh?
I for one will be beginning a protest "with extreme prejudice" if we don't get any news this Friday. That is all. (Your participation would be greatly appreciated.)
