Salinger: A Writing Life —65 , but this book was more about his experience in tracking down information and the copyright fights over the planned biography than about Salinger himself. An unintended consequence of the lawsuit was that many details of Salinger's private life, including that he had spent the last twenty years writing, in his words, "Just a work of fiction That's all",  became public in the form of court transcripts.
Excerpts from his letters were also widely disseminated, most notably a bitter remark written in response to Oona O'Neill 's marriage to Charlie Chaplin :. I can see them at home evenings. Chaplin squatting grey and nude, atop his chiffonier , swinging his thyroid around his head by his bamboo cane, like a dead rat.
Oona in an aquamarine gown, applauding madly from the bathroom. Though the film could be distributed legally in Iran since the country has no official copyright relations with the United States,  Salinger had his lawyers block a planned screening of the film at the Lincoln Center in In , Salinger gave a small publisher, Orchises Press, permission to publish " Hapworth 16, ", the previously uncollected novella.
After a flurry of articles and critical reviews of the story appeared in the press, the publication date was pushed back repeatedly before apparently being cancelled altogether. Amazon anticipated that Orchises would publish the story in January ,   but at the time of his death it was still listed as "currently unavailable". In June , Salinger consulted lawyers about the upcoming publication in the U.
In Salinger's novel, Caulfield is 16 years old, wandering the streets of New York after being expelled from his private school; the California book features a year-old man, "Mr. C", musing on having escaped his nursing home.

Batts issued an injunction which prevents the book from being published within the U. Salinger, author of the classic novel of adolescent rebellion, The Catcher in the Rye.

Maynard's memoir of her life and her relationship with Salinger, At Home in the World: A Memoir , was published the same year. Among other topics, the book described how Maynard's mother had consulted with her on how to appeal to the aging author: by dressing in a childlike manner, and described Joyce's relationship with him at length. In the ensuing controversy over both the memoir and the letters, Maynard claimed that she was forced to auction the letters for financial reasons; she would have preferred to donate them to the Beinecke Library at Yale.
In her book, she described the harrowing control that Salinger had over her mother and dispelled many of the Salinger myths established by Ian Hamilton's book. One of Hamilton's arguments was that Salinger's experience with post-traumatic stress disorder left him psychologically scarred, and that he was unable to deal with the traumatic nature of his war service. Margaret Salinger allowed that "the few men who lived through Bloody Mortain , a battle in which her father fought, were left with much to sicken them, body and soul",  but she also painted a picture of her father as a man immensely proud of his service record, maintaining his military haircut and service jacket, and moving about his compound and town in an old Jeep.
Both Margaret Salinger and Maynard characterized the author as a devoted film buff. Fields , Laurel and Hardy , and the Marx Brothers. Maynard wrote that "he loves movies, not films",  and Margaret Salinger argued that her father's "worldview is, essentially, a product of the movies of his day. To my father, all Spanish speakers are Puerto Rican washerwomen, or the toothless, grinning-gypsy types in a Marx Brothers movie".
He enjoyed watching actors work, and he enjoyed knowing them. Margaret also offered many insights into other Salinger myths, including her father's supposed long-time interest in macrobiotics , and involvement with "alternative medicine" and Eastern philosophies.
He disparaged his sister's "gothic tales of our supposed childhood" and stated: "I can't say with any authority that she is consciously making anything up. I just know that I grew up in a very different house, with two very different parents from those my sister describes. Salinger died of natural causes at his home in New Hampshire on January 27, He was Salinger continued to write throughout his life, although he did not publish any later works.
His widow, Colleen O'Neill, and son Matt Salinger prepared this work for publication after his death, announcing in that "all of what he wrote will at some point be shared", but that it was a big job and not yet ready. In a contributor's note Salinger gave to Harper's Magazine in , he wrote: "I almost always write about very young people", a statement that has been referred to as his credo.
In , the critic Alfred Kazin explained that Salinger's choice of teenagers as a subject matter was one reason for his appeal to young readers, but another was "a consciousness [among youths] that he speaks for them and virtually to them, in a language that is peculiarly honest and their own, with a vision of things that capture their most secret judgments of the world. Salinger identified closely with his characters,  and used techniques such as interior monologue, letters, and extended telephone calls to display his gift for dialogue. Such style elements also "[gave] him the illusion of having, as it were, delivered his characters' destinies into their own keeping.
Contemporary critics discuss a clear progression over the course of Salinger's published work, as evidenced by the increasingly negative reviews received by each of his three post- Catcher story collections. It took the standards of The New Yorker editors, among them William Shawn , to refine his writing into the "spare, teasingly mysterious, withheld" qualities of " A Perfect Day for Bananafish " , The Catcher in the Rye , and his stories of the early s.

Henry Award -winning author to state in "His is the most influential body of work in English prose by anyone since Hemingway. Salinger really opened my eyes as to how you can weave fiction out of a set of events that seem almost unconnected, or very lightly connected National Book Award finalist Richard Yates told The New York Times in that reading Salinger's stories for the first time was a landmark experience, and that "nothing quite like it has happened to me since".
In , Louis Menand wrote in The New Yorker that " Catcher in the Rye rewrites" among each new generation had become "a literary genre all its own". Writer Aimee Bender was struggling with her first short stories when a friend gave her a copy of Nine Stories ; inspired, she later described Salinger's effect on writers, explaining: "[I]t feels like Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye in a day, and that incredible feeling of ease inspires writing. Inspires the pursuit of voice.
