A Swedish author writing under the pseudonym "J.D. California" has reportedly completed a novel called 60 Years Later: Coming Through The Rye, about an elderly retiree named "Mr. C" who escapes from his nursing home and has a series of adventures that mark him as the spiritual heir to The Catcher In The Rye's Holden Caulfield--or perhaps the actual Holden Caulfield. --Noel Murray, Real J.D. Salinger not so keen on fake J.D. Salinger, A.V. Club, June 4, 2009
