Books about his fiction:
 

J.D. Salinger : A Study of the Short Fiction

Twayne's Studies in Short Fiction, by John Wenke
This is a very well written book especially on the sections about Franny and Zooey.
The biography is completely outdated in view of recent revelations.
Wenke doesn't understand Raise High but this is still a rather good secondary source.
