  2. From the Poetry Center Archive: James Salter—A Great American Writer
     
    James Salter makes his long-awaited return to 92Y on Monday night (Apr 29), reading from his new novel, All That Is, and sharing the stage with Richard Ford, who has said that “Salter writes American sentences better than anybody writing today.”
     
    In anticipation, we’ve uploaded a 1997 recording of Salter reading from his memoir Burning the Days. He was introduced by Susan Sontag, who echoed Ford’s sentiment.
