J.D. Salinger’s classic novel Catcher in the Rye will be published as an ebook for the first time this week, according to The New York Times. The profile details the late author and his estate’s reluctance to follow the rest of the publishing industry online.
The Times reports that Little, Brown and Company will publish the novel, as well as three other novels, Franny and Zooey, Nine Stories, and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour—An Introduction as ebooks this week. The move is part of a broader reveal of Salinger’s body of work, which will include an exhibition by the the New York Public Library later this year, which will display a selection of the author’s letters, photographs, and other items.
