I do feel bad for JD Salinger in the photo seen at this link. By his own account he did like to write. What he didn't enjoy was being a public figure. To the extent he was able, he made the choice not to be one.
Does that mean there's a treasure trove of Salinger writing we'll finally be privy to in the coming years? Maybe. If not, he's still the creator of Holden Caulfield and the author of Nine Stories. His tab is paid in full.
