Salter, James
A Sport And A Pastime.
Garden City, NY: Paris Review Editions/ Doubleday, 1967. First edition of this modern classic, hailed as a masterpiece. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by James Salter on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Jacket collage by Alex Gotfryd. First editions are exceptionally rare and desirable signed. "As nearly perfect as any American fiction I know," is how Reynolds Price (The New York Times) described this classic that has been a favorite of readers, both here and in Europe, for almost forty years. Set in provincial France in the 1960s, James Salter's A Sport and a Pastime is the intensely carnal story-part shocking reality, part feverish dream -of a love affair between a footloose Yale dropout and a young French girl. There is the seen and the unseen-and pages that burn with a rare intensity. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books [United States]
