The seductive classic that established Salter's reputation as one of the finest prose stylists of our time.
Touring Paris and provincial France in a handsome borrowed car, Philip Dean, Yale drop-out, has an affair with a young French woman named Anne-Marie. Their liaison is imagined with candour and sensitivity by an unnamed narrator, whose fantasies become compellingly and hauntingly real.
A Sport and A Pastime has been hailed as a watershed in American fiction of the 1960s: remarkable for its eroticism, its luminous prose and its ability to blur the boundaries of reality and dream life, daytime and night time, soul and flesh.
