JAMES SALTER, THE ART OF FICTION ~
University of Virginia Press
Only months before James Salter passed away,
at the age of eighty-nine,
he agreed to serve as the first
Kapnick Foundation Distinguished
Writer-in-Residence at the University of Virginia
where he delivered the three lectures presented
in this nifty little book, with maybe a
too long introduction by Salter's friend
and fellow novelist John Casey.
Something smaller, intimate and
comfortable with the size of the book
may have been a better choice.
No problem with the Salter.
We would love a fourth lecture,
