3 unpublished Salinger stories appear online
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Three unpublished stories by J.D. Salinger have appeared online.
Scanned versions of "The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls," "Paula" and "Birthday Boy" were uploaded to a file-sharing site this week against the wishes of "The Catcher in the Rye" author.
"The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls" is considered to be a prequel to "The Catcher in the Rye." Salinger said he did not want the story published before 2060.
The three stories were previously only available to read in a few libraries.
Kenneth Slawenski, the author of "J.D. Salinger: A Life," told Buzzfeed.com on Thursday that the online versions appear to true copies of the originals.
After publication of "The Catcher in the Rye" in 1951, Salinger lived reclusively in Cornish, N.H. He died in 2010 at age 91.
