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 ...quot;The Catcher in the Rye...quot; 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the public eye in the 1960s), but the book's big revelation is already causing quite a stir: Salinger completed five unpublished books that will be released in the years to come.
