Publisher's Summary

From his experiences as a naval officer in Japan during World War II, Philip Bowman returns to America and becomes a book editor. He soon inhabits a world where affairs ignite, alcohol reigns, writers struggle, and publishers hustle. As one marriage goes bad and another fails to happen; he meets a woman who enthralls, then betrays him, setting him on a course he could never have imagined for himself.

"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)
"A beautiful novel, with sufficient love, heartbreak, vengeance, identity, confusion, longing, and euphoria of language to have satisfied Shakespeare" (John Irving)

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.
