Salinger) went into isolation after writing this and never granted any rights to have it made. However he died recently so maybe it'll happen now!
NO!!!!! Please never, never, never, never make this a movie Hollywood. This book cannot and will not translate to screen. I know I compared this to Vonnegut's work, but he and Salinger are of like minds I believe. They have attempted to translate Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions to the screen and it was just aweful. So please idea-bankrupt Hollywood, please do not make this into a movie.
And yiske, do not let one tragic event ruin one of the greatest works of the 20th century. That would be like saying I can't drink Kool-Aid because of Jonesville, when the only reason not to drink it should be because it does not taste good
