Burning the Days


This memoir tells the story of James Salter's life to date, one that consists of two very different careers: Air Force fighter pilot and distinguished writer. A West Point graduate, Salter flew more than 100 combat missions during the Korean War. This book features descriptions of these and other flying adventures. In addition to his stories and novels, James Salter is the author of numerous screenplays (including "Downhill Racer"), and spent more than ten years in the movie industry. He has known some of the most talented men and women of his time, and their portraits appear in the book. James Salter is the author of "The Hunters", "The Arm of Flesh", "A Sport and a Pastime", "Light Years", "Solo Faces" and "'Dusk' and Other Stories". He won the PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction in 1989. Hide synopsis
