A Sport and a Pastime, Paperback Book

A Sport and a Pastime Paperback



The 1960s. Philip Dean, a footloose Yale dropout, is touring provincial France and sometimes Paris in a borrowed, once elegant car.

He begins a mismatched affair with a young shop girl named Anne-Marie.

Together they burn in an everyday but stunningly sensual paradise.

A Sport and A Pastime established James Salter's reputation as one of the finest writers of our time.

It is remarkable for its eroticism, its luminous prose and its ability to explore the boundaries between what is dreamt and what is lived, between body and soul.
