Judge’s review: Salinger spinoff a `dismal’ book

An appeals court in New York City has heard arguments on whether a Swedish author can publish a new book in America that was once promoted as a sequel to J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye.” One of the appeals court judges, Guido Calabresi, indicated he had read the new book, titled “60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye.”

He referred to it as a “rather dismal piece of work.”
