J.D. Salinger was famously private - and his privacy was often famously invaded - by photographers, journalist, curiosity seekers, film makers.
That Salinger lived in Cornish is well known. Less well known is that Salinger had two homes in Cornish. The first house he lived in for 14 years sits on the hill behind the second. It recently came on the market and I went to talk to its owner about her home - and about her long time neighbor, J.D. Salinger.
Gov. John Lynch's veto of a "right to publicity" bill motivated by J.D. Salinger's family will stand, after the New Hampshire Senate failed to get enough votes to override it.
The bill would have extended the state's "common law right to control the commercial use of one's identity" for 70 years beyond someone's death. It was sponsored at the request of Salinger's heirs who said they were offended by the use of "The Catcher in the Rye" author's image and name on items such as coffee mugs.
Salinger, who died in 2010, spent much of his life in rural Cornish.
