Book excerpt: This 54-minute documentary traces the writer James Salter's lifelong love affair with France, unforgettably expressed in his 1967 masterpiece, A Sport and a Pastime. The novel, a transcendent examination of sexual desire, follows an ill-fated love affair between a Yale dropout and a young French girl, played out in the villages of Burgundy in the 1960s. "Its spirit," The Washington Post wrote, " -- the ache and artistry of Scott Fitzgerald filtered through the cool sensibility of Flaubert or James -- evokes France, missed opportunities, all the fugitive beauty of youth." Salter, who began a career as a fighter pilot before resigning to become a writer, has been praised as a contemporary American master by Saul Bellow, Graham Greene, and Susan Sontag, among others. The film captures the great purity of Salter's prose and the essence of his power to evoke the erotic. Sublime footage of provincial France and fragments of the novel itself, read by the author Reynolds Price, are intercut with photographs by Ralph Gibson and conversations with writers, editors, and Robert Redford, for whom Salter wrote the screenplay, Downhill Racer. Salter's own reflections on his writing and life offer rich insights for reader and writer alike. James Salter: A Sport and a Pastime is a luminous depiction of the making of a writer and the genesis of a classic novel.

Book excerpt: With an introduction by John Banville. From his first published story in the Paris Review in 1968, James Salter's stories have been universally acclaimed. Including his two published collections, Dusk and Other Stories (1988) and Last Night (2005), and the previously uncollected 'Charisma', this volume contains over twenty short stories by one of the finest writers of our time. Concerning men and women in their most intimate moments, struggling with loss, desire, or the burden of memory, each indelible narrative in the Collected Stories is marked by James Salter's great literary grace, his ability to show the subtleties of a character or situation with precision, and his equally assured ability to command reversals of fortune or shocking revelations. 'It's the short stories which make him one of the greatest writers of the last century and the present one' Financial Times 'Writing that is bowstring-taut and carries considerable punch' Sunday Times 'Salter's stories are masterpieces of poise and clarity, so much so that their dazzling surface stillness often blinds you to the surprisingly bold risks' Metro

This book was released on 2015-11-23 with total page 224 pages. Book excerpt: James Salter (1925-2015) has been known throughout his career as a writer's writer, acclaimed by such literary greats as Susan Sontag, Richard Ford, John Banville, and Peter Matthiessen for his lyrical prose, his insightful and daring explorations of sex, and his examinations of the inner lives of women and men. Conversations with James Salter collects interviews published from 1972 to 2014 with the award-winning author of The Hunters, A Sport and a Pastime, Light Years, and All That Is. Gathered here are his earliest interviews following acclaimed but moderately selling novels, conversations covering his work as a screenwriter and award-winning director, and interviews charting his explosive popularity after publishing All That Is, his first novel after a gap of thirty-four years. These conversations chart Salter's progression as a writer, his love affair with France, his military past as a fighter pilot, and his lyrical explorations of gender relations. The collection contains interviews from Sweden, France, and Argentina appearing for the first time in English. Included as well are published conversations from the United States, Canada, and Australia, some of which are significantly extended versions, giving this collection an international scope of Salter's wide-ranging career and his place in world literature.
