"In [Salter’s] care, the dust of the mundane is wiped away.  Events resonate.  Descriptions sparkle.  Salter’s mastery is such that from the affecting and effective early scenes of protagonist Philip Bowman’s experiences off Okinawa during World War II, through all the twists and turns of a life played out in a rapidly changing America, nothing about this book disappoints...As absorbing as the brief chapters on war are, the author’s scenes of seduction re equally realistic and memorable...In this book, he has rubbed words to a high sheen indeed.”--Stevie Godson, New York Journal of Books
