"I did not grow up being into J. D. Salinger at all. What interested me is the idea of Salinger—this reclusive, mysterious figure," recalls author Adam Langer. "I was interested in exploring the idea of the myth a little bit."
Langer's newest novel, The Salinger Contract, is a literary caper that connects some of the world's most famous authors—including Truman Capote, Harper Lee and J. D. Salinger—to a sinister collector in Chicago. Born and raised in Chicago, Langer is the author of six novels and contributor for such publications as the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Huffington Post, and more.
In this exclusive video, Langer explores how his history in theater leads him to create characters who may not be exactly who they seem and stories that bend the conventional genres many readers have come to know and trust.
