In comments that appeared Friday in The Guardian, Matt Salinger confirmed long-standing reports that the author of "The Catcher in the Rye" had continued to write decades after he stopped publishing books.Salinger, who helps oversee his father's literary estate, says any new work might be years away and did not cite any specific titles or plots.Salinger rarely spoke to the media and not only stopped releasing new work but rejected any reissues or e-book editions of his published material.A 2013 documentary and book by Shane Salerno and David Shields cited two "independent and separate sources" in predicting five new works.Matt Salinger has dismissed the contents of the Salerno-Shields project, but never definitively said that no new work would appear.
