Remember that unauthorized sequel to a classic piece of literature we talked about earlier? The Smoking Gun has discovered the responsible party. Turns out this isn’t his first book!
The anonymous author of the purported sequel to “The Catcher in the Rye,” which has triggered a lawsuit by J.D. Salinger, is a Swedish man whose previous published works include “The Macho Man’s (Bad) Joke Book,” “The Erotic A-Z,” and a volume listing the 100 best heavy metal albums.
Ironically, one reviewer of “The Macho Man’s (Bad) Joke Book” referred to it as “the ‘Franny & Zooey’ of the genre,” so this might actually be a good fit.
