So, someone seems to have sneaked into a library (or maybe got hold of an ultra rare copy) and uploaded three unpublished JD Salinger stories online – “Birthday Boy,” “Paula” and “The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls.” you can check them out yourself here
People who know about these kind of things have always maintained there is a fair number of JDS books out there, and some say it won’t be till something crazy like 2050 that he authorised they could be printed, but who can wait that long? Some say it’s a ethical decision to read something he didn’t want printed, but I’ll leave that up to you. i suppose they might be a disappointment, but maybe that’s a risk worth taking?
It seems a good time to once again mention the film and book Salinger which came out a couple of months ago and is on my, and hopefully yours, Christmas wish list. It’s epic.
Next week i’m starting a music review of the year where every week I’ll start with an EP, then a single, then a music video, and finally an album that I’ve found pretty epic this year. It’s not the “best”, but it’s hopefully something a little bit of obscure radness to brighten up the dark December nights.
