James Salter
The 87-year-old writer, who is considered both a literary titan and a relative unknown, comes forward with his first novel in more than 30 years. All That Is, which takes on many of Salter's early themes, is an absorbing story of a WWII vet who navigates the publishing houses and women of New York.
