Reclusive author J.D. Salinger will be given the full biography treatment, thanks to Shane Salerno, David Shields and Simon & Schuster. Shields and Salerno's "The Private War of J.D. Salinger" will be published by Simon & Schuster in September of this year. The author of "The Catcher in the Rye" famously withdrew from public life in 1953 and for more than 50 years closely guarded his privacy, including suing to prevent one biographer from using material from his unpublished letters.

Literary tourists traveling to New York have long been drawn to the Algonquin Hotel , the site of the famed Algonquin Roundtable. Full disclosure: "Literary tourists" include me -- I've been there more than once to have a martini in its lounge. The Algonquin was where a group of writers, wits and key literary figures met starting in 1919 to eat, argue and, of course, drink. Dorothy Parker, the petite poet with an acid pen and a hollow leg, was one of its stalwarts. So was Robert Benchley, one of his generation's most popular humorists; Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edna Ferber; writer, editor and producer George S. Kaufman, winner of two Pulitzers; New York Times drama critic Alexander Woollcott; and Harold Ross, who, midway through the Roundtable's eight-year run, founded the New Yorker magazine.

WASHINGTON - Former Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs was a key player in a conspiracy with five major book publishers to drive up the price of digital books, federal and state officials said in antitrust lawsuits filed against the companies. Jobs helped orchestrate a complex price-fixing plan that cost consumers tens of millions of dollars over the last two years by boosting the price of many new releases and bestsellers by $3 to $5 each, federal investigators said. Apple even proudly described the maneuver - which gave the iPad maker a guaranteed 30% commission on each e-book sold through its online marketplace - as an "aikido move," referring to the Japanese martial art, according to the lawsuit.
