Light Years
Book for May 2015
Group 3
This novel by James Salter is the story of Nedra and Viri, a portrait of a marriage. Their lives are centered around dinners, games with their children, enviable friends, and perfect days passed skating on a frozen river or sunning on a beach. But cracks appear, narcissism, adultery, rationalizations; flaws that eventually mar the lovely picture beyond repair.
About the Author
James Salter

James Salter (1925 - 2015) was an American novelist and short-story writer. Originally a career officer and pilot in the United States Air Force, he abandoned the military profession in 1957 following the publication of his first novel, The Hunters. According to Salter only his 1967 novel A Sport and a Pastime came close to meeting his own standards. After Solo Faces in 1979 Salter didn't publish another novel until All That Is in 2013, two years before his death. Salter won the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1989.
