This J. D. Salinger documentary attempts to unravel the truth behind the notorously reclusive author’s childhood, work methods, marriages, private world, and secrets, as it includes interviews with a number of colleagues and members of the author’s inner circle of friends who have never before gone on record about the figure. Director Shane Salerno is also co-authoring a biography with David Shields, titled The Private War of J.D. Salinger, which will hit shelves in September. Salinger will air as part of PBS’ American Master in January 2014.
