A federal judge in New York has issued a temporary restraining order against the publication of the book “60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye,” noting similarities between it and J.D. Salinger’s classic “The Catcher in the Rye,” Entertainment Weekly is reporting.

Salinger has sued to block the publication of “60 Years Later,” by Swedish author Fredrik Colting, saying it is the equivalent of an unauthorized sequel.


You know, making the character Holden Caulfield a cranky old man takes something away from “Catcher in the Rye” — mostly its point.
