Retour avec un entretien de Shane Salerno ….
Salinger, Salingee at Telluride. Salinger, the decade-in-the-making documentary on reclusive salonger J. Salinger—he of The Catcher in the Rye fame—has been buzzed about for quite some time.
Just last week, news leaked that the film reveals five posthumous works by Salinger that are scheduled to be published between and This book contains five new short stories about his recurring character Seymour Glass. This short story was written by Salinger inand tells another tale from the perspective of Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of The Catcher in the Rye. The film opens with an ex-Newsweek photographer recounting how, inhe was hired to snap a picture of the notoriously reclusive Salinger in his hometown of Cornish, New Hampshire—eventually capturing him leaving his local zalinger office.
Once someone asked him what J. His parents enrolled him at Valley Forge Military Academy, where he began writing. But his first love was acting. When he signed his school yearbook, he signed not attrap his name, but the names of all the characters he portrayed in school plays.
This crushed Salinger, but also perhaps provided some creative inspiration, for it was during World War II that he wrote portions of The Catcher in the Rye, allegedly carrying six chapters of the novel on his person during D-Day to protect him. The documentary shows a brief, never-before-seen clip of Salinger in the Army during August A woman gives the soldier a athrape of flowers, and Salinger seems so touched, he removes his hat.
They divorced soon after, and the documentary then chronicles his flings with numerous young women, including Jean Miller, who salingger Salinger when she was 14 at Daytona Beach. Afterwards, he left her.
Then there are the numerous rejections he received from The New Yorker, which initially refused to publish his short stories; then his successes there and the chaos surrounding the release of The Catcher in the Rye, which eventually sent him into seclusion.
Salinger is a thoroughly engrossing film that provides a full-bodied portrait of the man, the myth, the legend J. Salinger saljnger brief reenactmentts, archival footage, and more than interviews with lovers, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, super-fans, journalists, and modern-day admirers like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Martin Sheen.
It is truly unbelievable how much research went into the making of this film, and it shows on screen. But Salinger is also a bit of a Catch, since you know that the coeir author, who passed away in at age 91, would have hated that this film was made. It consumed 10 years. Having atfrape speak for the first time was a huge challenge. I felt that only the people that knew Salinger could really speak to how complex and contradictory he was, and people who had spent important time with him, people who had shared real experiences coehr him at different stages of his life.
Salinger had an interesting pattern of having people in his life for three, four, five years, and during that time he would be completely focused doeur them, and then there always seemed to be a big blowout, and that person would be banished from his life for one reason or another.
So convincing people to speak, who in some cases were really wounded for 30, 40, or 50 years, was very difficult. But to be fair, everyone said that at other times, he was a very warm and sweet man who was always known as Jerry—no one ever knew him as J. But the point is, everything about [Salinger] was warm, and kind, ceur another way you could look coeeur it, cleur my point of view and my life, was what a privilege it was to have that time with him, even if it did have quite a dramatic end.
It made him as an artist, but it broke him as a man. He was living with PTSD throughout his life. This is something that we sakinger in very strongly, and I placed a fellow veteran of his from the Fourth Division in the film talking about seeing bombs falling in his living room, because I do think that that is an area that is not associated with Salinger—that shell-shocked tone is directly from his experiences in WWII, and it really is the ghost in the machine of all his stories.
When you reread the work with that in mind, you even realize that The Catcher salinfer the Rye is a disguised war novel. There is so little material on Salinger; there are none of the traditional tools you have. There are no interviews, no audio recordings, very few pictures.
The re-creations are probably a cumulative 7 minutes of a 2-hour and 4-minute film, but we felt they were really necessary to put you in that place—to have you experience a person—because there were just inherent limitations.
The Private War Of J. I remember that being the first book you take with you. How many millions and millions came to that book? And that was something that stunned me. He carried these chapters with him almost as a talisman to keep ealinger alive.
And he worked on the book throughout the war. His first day of combat was D-Day, and from there he proceeded into the hedgerows in salinegr Battle of the Hurtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, and then ultimately entering a concentration camp, a sub-camp of Dachau. Salinger had not participated in World War II, we would not be having this conversation.
The fact is, is that the work that is known prior to combat is not on the level that the rest of the work is. All of the work for which we know J.
Before he had landed on D-Day, J. Salinger was a Park Avenue rich kid. Nothing prepared him for what World War II was going to do to him psychologically. And we know this because at the end of the war he checked into a mental institution and then did something truly remarkable, which is came out of the mental institution and signed back up for more and participated in the de-Nazification of Germany.

Did Salinger know he was writing a great American attraoe while he was at it, or do xttrape think he just was hoping he was writing a great American novel? Salinger was their most popular writer. And when we discovered that and when we investigated that and actually talked — we were the first people that really talked with people who were at Harcourt Brace at the time — I mean, they really thought Holden Caulfield was crazy, and by extension that Salinger was crazy.
And in fact, he teared up in the room and was deeply, deeply hurt. And then it is published and the world loves it. He wants a book for the ages.
He was completely overwhelmed by fame.
And he moved to Cornish, New Hampshire, and he never looked back. He would go into the city for certain lunches and dinners with select friends or come to a bookstore or come to a play. Salinger was not a recluse. He was very private and he wanted a private life. He was a man of deep, deep contradictions. This was a man who would write about renouncing the world and then write a letter to a friend talking about how much he loved the Whopper at Burger King. Did you get a sense of what he thought about having suddenly touched so many young people in such a powerful way?
He said as much. They get in their cars — we interviewed some of these people who left their lives, left their families, left their jobs just to see him. They think that he is a guru, that they think that he has the answers to the problems in their life, that they want to have deep conversations with him. Salinger eventually has little patience for these people.
And just to put this in perspective: Salinger and then married Charlie Chaplin just after her 18th birthday. Salinger met her when she was 16 and fell head over heels in love with her.
And they were divided by war. Salinger finds out that he loses Oona to Chaplin and is devastated. And Salinger was always attracted to girls at the edge of their transformation into womanhood. In my own reporting I like to bury the lead, and in that regard, your research breaks some important news, and that is that Salinger may not be finished publishing.
You know, after nine years and after uncovering photos and documents and interviews with people that had never come forward or never been seen, as part of that, we were able to confirm that there is more work and that work will be published fairly soon.
We think that from the sources that we have, that the work will be published in irregular installments between and I wonder how you feel about that. I mean, his last works were criticized as being long and preachy tone and short and other kinds of content. Do you worry that these new works might suffer the same fate? I see that reflected in various articles. I believe that the work will be significant and important. Shane Salerno is the co-author of a new book about J.
Salinger and the director, producer and writer of an accompanying documentary. Thank you so much for your time.
I really enjoyed speaking with you. Salinger may not be done publishing after all, according to claims in a new film and book set for release next week.
Salinger instructed his estate to publish at least five additional books — some of them entirely new, some extending past work — in a sequence that he intended to begin as early as The new books and stories were largely written before Mr.
Salinger assigned his output to a trust inand would greatly expand the Salinger legacy. Salinger was deeply involved; a novel set during World War II and based on his first marriage; and a novella modeled on his own war experiences.
For decades, those in touch with Mr. But qttrape one had made so detailed a public claim that Mr. Salinger had left extensive posthumous publishing plans. Matthew Salinger, who is Mr. In an interview earlier this year, Matthew Salinger said he was skeptical that the planned book and documentary would deepen public understanding of his father, who, he said, for decades had confined his intimate dealings to coeug small circle of seven or eight people. The documentary is directed by Shane Salerno, a filmmaker who spent nine years researching salunger filming the movie that is set for release by the Weinstein Company on Sept.
Speaking in his Los Angeles office on Saturday, Mr. Salerno pointed to tables and shelves filled attape previously unpublished photographs, hundreds of letters and even a handwritten World War II diary that belonged to atteape of Mr.
