NEW YORK, June 2 (UPI) -- Reclusive author J.D. Salinger has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in Manhattan against the publishers of "60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye."

The novel by an anonymous author known only as J.D. California is being promoted as a sequel to Salinger's 1951 classic "The Catcher in the Rye," the New York Daily News said.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Manhattan Federal Court and describes the followup, which finds Salinger's iconic Holden Caufield character at a retirement home in upstate New York, as "a ripoff pure and simple," the Daily News said.
