2. The Glass Family Trilogy by J.D. Salinger. According to various reports, rumors, and whispers, Salinger died with quite a bit of finished work lying around. The strongest possibility is for at least one, and possibly three, novels about the Glass family, a hint of which was released as a novella called “Hapworth 16, 1924.” This gives a glimmer of the scale and complexity of what he was working on: “Hapworth 16, 1924″ takes the form of a long, digressive letter by seven-year-old Simon Glass written while he was at summer camp. If I had to bet, I would guess that the Glass family saga got out of control, a sort of War and Peace for Conneticut WASPs. Who knows when and if and in what form any of this will ever see the light of day, but there is something lurking out there.
