The seductive classic that established Salter's reputation as one of the finest prose stylists of our time
With an introduction by Sarah HallThe 1960s. Philip Dean, a footloose Yale dropout, is touring provincial France and sometimes Paris in a borrowed, once elegant car. He begins a mismatched affair with a young shop girl named Anne-Marie. Together they burn in an everyday but stunningly sensual paradise. A Sport and A Pastime is a seductive classic that established James Salter's reputation as one of the finest writers of our time. It is remarkable for its eroticism, its luminous prose and its ability to explore the boundaries between what is dreamt and what is lived, between body and soul.
"The novel is well written, I found the language very descriptive but cool, almost cynical, and it did nothing for my imagination. My expectations may however have been a bit too high based on the reviews I'd read of the novel that praise it as being some of the best American fiction."
