Author J.D. Salinger’s secluded former home in Cornish, New Hampshire, is for sale for $679,000. Salinger bought the home in 1953, the year his “Nine Stories” was published. He sold it in the 1960s, but remained in Cornish.
"Whether or not Salinger actually wrote much in the house is something of a mystery," books reporter Carolyn Kellogg notes, but the stories “Franny,” “Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters,” “Zooey” and “Seymour: An Introduction” were published during the years he lived there. (“The Catcher in the Rye” was published before he moved in.)
