'Salinger' is set to air on PBS on Jan. 21.
Books by authors like J.D. Salinger and Aldous Huxley are so highly thought of by teenagers that those who are reading them will display them prominently in backpacks or pockets.
Following the release of a documentary and book, both titled 'Salinger,' the documentary's director will write the screenplay for a biopic of the 'Catcher in the Rye' author.
The novel people most commonly claim to have read is '1984' by George Orwell, followed by 'War and Peace' by Leo Tolstoy.
Harvey Weinstein, whose company is distributing the documentary 'Salinger,' hinted at great secrets in the new movie, but Salinger's son Matthew is disparaging of the film.
