Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Dusk and Other Stones is James Salter's only short-story collection. Virtuosic and exquisitely compressed, these stories snow Salter at his best. The collection received the 1989 PEN/Faulkner Award.
Amazon.com Review
This short-story collection won the 1989 PEN/Faulkner Award for James Salter, author of Solo Faces and A Sport and A Pastime. Here, Salter's themes are memory and loss, the demands of honor and the inherent betrayals of sexual relations. Salter works like a miniaturist, evoking vast landscapes in a few lines: "Nothing is safe except for an hour," he writes in one beautiful story, opening up a whole world-view. Often, at the end of a story that runs only a few pages, the perspective suddenly broadens, the prose elevates to an abstract lyricism, and the reader is transported.
