Somehow it leaked out, a pirated version ended up on hapworht, and from there, this story and many other unpublished Salinger works were in circulation. And then I blew it. I wanted my tiny publishing house, Orchises Press, to publish his novella Hapworth 16, There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The sense of unreality that hangs over it is more pervasive than in the other Glass family works; the others you might doubt, but probably won’t disbelieve.
