"Salter is the contemporary writer most admired and envied by other writers…he can, when he wants, break your heart with a sentence" (Washington Post)

    "Life goes by so fast"

    James Salter's writing is beautiful, elegant and delicate at the same time and gives you plenty of emotions . The life of the main characters is presented in a series of pictures at different times of his existence , without an excessively structured and logic connection.
    We are the privileged witness of his hopes, emotions, deceptions ; we feel with him thorough 60+ years. A great book, plenty of joy and sadness, which reminds us that great literature can be great fun.
