Salinger, best known for his controversial novel The Catcher in the Ryeis recognized by critics and readers alike as one of the most popular and influential authors of American fiction during the second half of the twentieth century. Growing up in the "House of Glass" Jerome David Salinger was born in New York City on January 1,and like the members of the fictional Glass family that appear in some of his works, was the product of mixed parentage—his father was Jewish and his mother was Scotch-Irish. Salinger's upbringing was not unlike that of Holden Caulfield of The Catcher in the Rye, the Glass children, and many of his other characters.
Salinger, who has spent the past 34 years writing books that he has never allowed to be published and suing anyone who has dared to borrow from his work, has lodged the lawsuit in a New York federal court. He is suing the author, publisher and distributor of a forthcoming novel called 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye, which features a year-old "Mr C".

Its author is called JD California, which the lawsuit claims is a pseudonym, and he dedicates the book to Salinger who he calls "the most terrific liar". The publisher is a newly-formed UK firm called Windupbird Publishing. Printed copies of the book, however, have been circulating in New York.
