My Salinger Year (out Jan 14) is based on a memoir and set in 1995. It's the story of a young writer (Margaret Qualley) who lands a job managing the fan mail for reclusive author J.D. Salinger at a literary agency. The best scenes involve a prickly Sigourney Weaver as the agency's boss but the remaining elements (particularly the romance subplot involving Douglas Booth) are dull. Grade: B-.
