J.D SALINGER, the American author best known for writing the classic coming-of-age novel 'The Catcher in the Rye', died one year ago tomorrow (27th January 2011) at the age of 91. Salinger's life was shrouded in mystery and he was famous for his reclusive nature and refusal to take part in interviews.
However, a year after his death, a new biography is set to be published entitled 'J.D Salinger: A Life' which explores, amongst other things, the years that the writer spent in the US Army during World War II. The book by Kenneth Slawenski has been described by USA Today as being "sympathetic and insightful" and sheds light on Salinger's role in the 12th Regiment that fought on Utah Beach on D-Day. Slawenski has used military records to discover that the writer also fought at the bloodbath that was Hurtgen Forest in the winter of 1944 where only 563 soldiers survived from an original team of over 3,000.
Salinger, who created one of the great literary characters in the anti-hero Holden Caulfield, is said to have left behind a vast collection of unpublished novels but his estate are yet to comment on the speculation.
