THANK GOTT.

I'm rereading Franny and Zooey tomorrow. :(

I need to buy all his books. Also, congrats on your final draft!!!

Thank you! There will probably be one more draft based on beta feedback and then, well, I guess it's query time. :|

I just woke up and found out and am trying to convince myself it would be stupid to cry.

I DID. I'm also afraid it's my fault because I told someone today that GGM should diaf and this is the universe's way of punishing me. D:

RACHEL LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

I'm really frightened that someone's going to now use the fact that he's not there to defend his work anymore to make a movie out of any and all of the books, and it will be horrible, and I'm already refusing to see The Road, I don't know what I'll do if they try and put Holden on a screen. DDD:

I KNOW. DDD:

Oh god that would be HORRIFIC. If there's one book - or books - that should not be filmed, it's those. You could never capture Holden. OR SEYMOUR IMAGINE WHAT THEY WOULD DO TO SEYMOUR AND ZOOEY. DDD:
the claw-foot Ladysoftlyforgotten on January 28th, 2010 11:14 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping that the other books are still obscure enough to pass under the radar, but Holden would be AWFUL. They could NEVER DO IT, but they'd get Wes Anderson or someone to try, and. *sob*

OR THE COEN BROTHERS. That would be, like, the most nightmare scenario ever. But with VOICEOVERS.

Megan Fox would probably be in it.
the claw-foot Ladysoftlyforgotten on January 28th, 2010 11:25 pm (UTC)
... lol, I would probably watch that, just because. Megan Fox. But I would have to pretend it was just a movie in which Megan Fox was hot and said things occasionally, rather than, y'know, a story.

SALINGER.

:| You WOUND me. Megan Fox is not HOT. Megan Fox is ORANGE.

I WANTED MORE STORIES BEFORE YOU LEFT, DAMMIT. I'm totally chasing him for more in the afterlife.
the claw-foot Ladysoftlyforgotten on January 28th, 2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
SOMETIMES she is orange, but ALWAYS she is hot. Oh god I'm so ashamed. /o\

Did you see that online archive of his unpublished stories? There is a long letter by Seymour, aged eight!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 28th, 2010 11:34 pm (UTC)
Hmm, well. I guess it depends on your POV. Like, I only think girls are attractive if they look like how I'd like to look. But I wouldn't find a man attractive because I'd like to look like him, so ... keep your orange ladies.

NO. There goes my bedtime...
the claw-foot Ladysoftlyforgotten on January 28th, 2010 11:37 pm (UTC)
Ahaha, see, I think I am almost exactly the same in reverse. (Hi, Ryan Ross!) I will keep my orange ladies & gladly, merci.

I know, right? GLORIOUS.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 28th, 2010 11:46 pm (UTC)
I find him conventionally attractive. As in YES, I WOULD TAP THAT. :DDD

HELP HELP I CAN'T ACTUALLY FIND THE STORIES TELL ME THERE ARE STORIES THERE NOT JUST SOMEONE WRITING SPOILERY OUTLINES!!!
the claw-foot Ladysoftlyforgotten on January 28th, 2010 11:47 pm (UTC)
Ugh, now I can't find them! But here's another website which looks more promising. :D

I thought it was the other way round? I think he's rumoured to have written quite a lot he wouldn't allow to be published until his death. I read Franny and Zooey a day or two ago and got all excited about what else he wrote. So on the one hand my timing is most appropriate and on the other I feel a wee bit guilty.
daybreaqdaybreaq on January 29th, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)
Yeah, he had been in seclusion for years and it has always been rumoured he continued writing; that he just became disenchanted with making his work public. Is there a room filled with treasures? Will his children release them? From what I've read, his son and daughter haven't always seen eye to eye on the subject of their father's privacy.

It would be unaccountably cruel if they destroyed the manuscripts, but how will they let them be read? If it was me, I'd post them online and let the internet do its magic. If Salinger's main problem was with the machine of publishing, that is.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 31st, 2010 10:19 pm (UTC)
I heard about that too and it fills me with \o/, but what I meant was no more writing ever again. The publishing part is just a distribution mechanism. You can go on publishing things hundreds of years after writers die, it doesn't mean there'll ever be anything new.
