J.D. Salinger Doesn't Want to TalkBook - 2003
Seeking shelter from the publicity stirred up by The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger, a reluctant idol of teen rebels since the 1950s, retreated from public life to become America's most intriguing literary recluse. What is the real story of the man behind the voice of Holden Caulfield: Setting out in search of the elusive 80-year-old icon, this outstanding program brings together a large group of intimates, including a close family member, the author's best friends from school and from college, former lover Joyce Maynard, colleagues who have known and worked with Salinger over the years, and others -- many speaking publicly for the first time.
