US author JD Salinger's toilet on sale for $1m

     US author JD Salinger's toilet has been put on sale on the online auction site eBay for 1 million dollars. The vendor says he obtained the "used toilet commode" from a couple who now own the former home of the Catcher in the Rye author. It comes "uncleaned and in its original condition", the ad for it states, reports the BBC. "Who knows how many of [his] stories were thought up and written while Salinger sat on this throne!" it adds. The toilet comes with a letter from Joan Littlefield, attesting that the toilet was removed during renovations to her and her husband's house in Cornish, New Hampshire , formerly owned by the reclusive author. There have been a number of bids on the item. Salinger died in January, aged 91.
