In Search of More J.D. Salinger? You're in Luck!

According to the authors, the J.D. Salinger Literary Trust — controlled by Salinger's wife Colleen and his son, Matthew — will release five new Salinger works between 2015 and 2020

1. An anthology, The Family Glass, which will include the existing Glass family stories along with five new ones, as well as a Glass genealogy.

2. A World War II novel inspired by Salinger's enormously complicated relationship with his first wife, Sylvia, a German woman with possible Nazi connections.

3. A manual of the Vedanta Hindu religion that Salinger practiced for more than 50 years, ''with short stories, almost fables, woven into the text.''

4. A novella based on Salinger's own military experiences that ''takes the form of a counterintelligence agent's diary entries during World War II.''

5. ''A complete retooling'' of Salinger's unpublished Caulfield story ''The Last and Best of the Peter Pans,'' which will be packaged with other Caulfield stories and The Catcher in the Rye.
