Thomas Beller has been getting over J. D. Salinger his entire life.
For his new book, J. D. Salinger: The Escape Artist, he trailed his subject from Park Avenue to his final refuge, barnstorming across New England to visit various Salinger shrines, interviewing just about everyone alive who ever knew Salinger. He's joined by two eminent biographers, Edmund White, whose new memoir, Inside a Pearl, comes out this spring, and moderator Patricia Bosworth, author of acclaimed biographies of Montgomery Clift, Marlon Brando, Diane Arbus and Jane Fonda.
