London Lit Festival 13: James Salter

At 87-years-old, James Salter has written what is likely to be his final novel, 'All That Is'. The book draws together the great themes of his lifetime's work - war, love, sex, marriage and what it means to write.

It is a sweeping, seductive love story set in post-Second World War America. Spanning decades it tells of one man's passions and regrets.

James Salter is one of modern America's finest writers and this is a unique opportunity to hear him in London. He talks to Southbank Centre's Head of Literature and Spoken Word James Runcie about his life and work.

'Sentence for sentence, Salter is the master.' Richard Ford
