Don't Save Anything : Uncollected Essays, Articles, and Profiles - Reprint by James Salter (Paperback)
About this item
"James Salter honed over the course of 60 years the lean, elegant prose style that graces each page in this new collection, Don't Save Anything. . . . There's much to admire in the values Salter conveys with such lucidity in his work."—The Boston Globe
One of the greatest writers of American sentences in our literary history, James Salter's acute and glimmering portrayals of characters are built with a restrained and poetic style. The author of several memorable works of fiction—including Dusk and Other Stories, which won the PEN/Faulkner Award—he is also celebrated for his memoir Burning the Days and many nonfiction essays.
This collection gathers Salter's thoughts on writing and profiles of important writers, observations of the changing American military life, evocations of Aspen winters, musings on mountain climbing and skiing, and tales of travels to Europe that first appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, People, Condé Nast Traveler, the Aspen Times, among other publications.
