James Salter's Novel All That Is

Thursday, May 09, 2013

PEN/Faulkner winner James Salter talks about his new novel, All That Is , a sweeping, seductive story set in the years after World War II. It’s the story of Philip Bowman, who returns to America from in battles off Okinawa, and finds a position as a book editor. It is a time when publishing is still largely a private affair, and in this world of dinners, deals, and literary careers, Bowman finds that he fits in perfectly. But despite his success, what eludes him is love.
