Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER
A "New York Times" "Book Review" Notable Book
An NPR "Great Reads" Book
"All That Is" explores a life unfolding in a world on the brink of change. Philip Bowman returns to America from the battlefields of Okinawa and finds success in the competetive world of publishing in postwar New York--yet what he most desires, and what eludes him, is love.
Here is PEN/Faulkner winner James Salter's dazzling, sometimes devastating portrait of love and ambition, a fiercely intimate account of the great shocks and grand pleasures of being alive.




About the Author
James Salter (1925 2015) was a novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter. Salter grew up in New York City and was a career officer and air force pilot until his mid-30s, when the success of his first novel ("The Hunters, "1957) led to a full-time writing career. Salter s potent, lyrical prose earned him acclaim from critics, readers, and fellow novelists. His novel "A Sport and a Pastime "(1967) was hailed by the "New York Times "as nearly perfect as any American fiction.
