From Three Stories by J. D. Salinger. It includes three previously unpublished works titled The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls, Birthday Boy, and Paula.
The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls is a much sought-after tale as it relates with characters that appear in Salinger’s most famous novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
Until now, it’s only been available to be read under supervision at Princeton University’s Firestone Library … they were scheduled to be published no earlier than 2051, in respect of Salinger’s will, which ordered they remain hidden away until 50 years after his death.
