Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I've always know what my first thought would be when hearing that he had passed:When do the posthumous publications begin . . . and what will they be?And . . . I was right. It's the first thing that occurred to me.
I thought the same thing, and then I thought, "Oh great, now that Salinger is out of the way some idiot is finally going to try and make a movie out of Catcher in the Rye."
Swac, that was my second thought.
Here's a Damocles sword we can all dread:Michael Cera as Holden Caulfield . . . and you know it could happenIt'll be a complete waste of time, no matter who makes it, since there's already been an effective adaptation of Catcher in the Rye (I'm referring, of course, to Taxi Driver)
Schon sehr früh war ich in Holden Caufield verknallt.die aura von eleganz und lässigkeit,bei allem,was er tat oder wo er war hat mich angezogen,oder sei es nur die tatsache,dass er sich seinen cashmereschal in sein jackett tat.ruhe in frieden D.J.Salinger,du begleitest mich noch heute,oder meinen sohn.
I just hate it when some phony guy holding a highball glass and smoking some phony French cigarette stands around talking about stealing some guy's book to make a lousy movie out of.
Translation:Already very early I was left in Holden Caufield slam-slamming those aura of elegance and, with everything that he did or where it has me tightened, or was it only the fact that it do-rested itself its cashmereschal into its jacket in peace D.J.Salinger, you accompanies me this very day, or means son.
Thanks for the translation. That clears it right up.
Arrested development finally arrested.
Swac,thank you for yours friendly translation.in future i will try to writing in englisch,its easylier vor all.have a nice evening.
An artist who knew when to shut up. God bless you and rest in peace, sir.
Christ, I thought the guy would never shut up.Seriously, I'm going to take the Joe Gould's Secret bet on this one, and say that nothing publishable will be found, though if there is anything that can be published it will be. I'll make another bet: The estate will respect the author's apparent wishes on not selling film rights, at least while his immediate descendants are alive.
P.S. Bud Cort once did an unabridged reading of Catcher in the Rye, which was broadcast on the Pacifica station KPFK, back when Pacifica radio was literate. I have no idea if it's available in recorded form anywhere. If a movie had been made when he was the proper age, that would have been perfect casting.
