J.D. Salinger’s works are finally going digital.
The author’s son, Matthew, has authorized his publisher to release digital editions of his four books: The Catcher in the Rye, Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction.
For years, he resisted, knowing how much his father disliked the internet, but in the past decade, it’s become clear that many young people — and those with certain disabilities — prefer to read on screens.
Matthew Salinger talked about this decision and others relating to his father’s literary legacy in an interview with the New York Times.
The ebooks go on sale tomorrow (August 13), according to the publisher’s website.
