J.D.: The Plot to Steal J.D. Salinger's Manuscripts

Book Review and Interview with Patricia Sierra and John Philpin

Book Review

J.D.: The Plot to Steal J.D. Salinger’s Manuscripts, by Sierra Philpin, is a tale of mystery, intrigue and the consequences of behaving badly. 

Publisher: Feather Tunnel Publishing Co. (February 9, 2009)

Leonard Wellington Worthy, a professor with a wife and a simple life, has a plan to finally win the race to the finish line. The goal is to be the first to publish a book on J.D. Salinger, and he’s going to do it by stealing the manuscripts he believes J.D. has been working on for decades in seclusion. But soon Leonard’s plan begins to unravel and he finds himself a suspect in a murder investigation.
In a mere thirty-six hours my world had been transformed from a stable, predictable tranquility into a Kafkaesque nightmare of flux and phantasm.

  1. This sounds very intresting and definelty worth a read. I'm starting something with my middle schooler this summer where we will both go to the Library and pick a book to read in a week, I think this will be my first choice. I'll let you know what I think of it! Thanks! What a fun site you got here! I found you on VoiceBoks, so glad you joined! I've really been enjoying my time there! Take care! I'm a new and very happy follower!

  2. I love this idea, Kathy. I think I'll start doing that with my son. He's still pretty young, but there are some stories we could read that might take us a week or so to get through - a longish Whinnie the Pooh, for example.

  3. Hi Sue! Thanks for finding me! I think we have a lot in common...my dad is from Kalispell, Montana, near Glacier National Park. I've seen the border! Looking forward to your posts.

  4. It's beautiful country, isn't it? Thanks for visiting, Beth!
