Before the success of Catcher in the Rye allowed J.D. Salinger to become a recluse, he published 22 short stories, many in mass circulation magazines. He went to court several times to block unauthorized publication of the stories in book form. But now they are available online, and easy for anyone to find. This course will discuss each of these stories, explore where they fit in among Salinger’s four published books, and explore reasons why he didn’t want them published.
