SALINGER, by David Shields and Shane Salerno. This new biography of the famously reclusive author J.D. Salinger, who died in 2010 at the age of 91, is tied to a documentary film also released last week. Biographical details may be scant (the author of "The Catcher in the Rye" withdrew from the public eye in the 1960s), but the book's big revelation is already causing quite a stir: Salinger completed five unpublished books that will be released in the years to come.
