Salinger Sequel Defense Plans to Appeal

salingerbook.jpgThe morning after federal Judge Deborah Batts ruled that a Swedish author could not publish the follow-up to “The Catcher in the Rye,” the book’s distributor vowed to appeal.

“60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye” by Fredrik Coltingwas to be distributed by Aaron Silverman of SCB Distributors Inc.. “Today’s ruling temporarily prevents us from bringing a wonderful book to U.S. readers,” he explained, noting they “plan to appeal.” In addition, a defense lawyer involved in the case said the judge was effectively “banning the book.”

Here’s a statement from Edward H. Rosenthal, an attorney at Frankfurt Kurnit, part of the book’s legal team: “We are very disappointed that the judge chose to ban Mr. Colting’s book … ’60 Years Later’ is an important critical work about ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’ Because of the Court’s decision banning the book, members of the public are deprived of the chance to read the book and decide for themselves whether it adds to their understanding of Salinger and his work.”
