Présentation de l'éditeur :

Obscured by low, brooding rain clouds, two lost planes drift ominously beyond their landing strip and over the heads of the waiting men below. A former enlisted man fresh out of flying school, Lieutenant Cassada is the latest arrival in a complacent Air Force squadron in Cold War Germany. From the outset, several characteristics alienate Cassada from the tightly-knit group of men he joins: his mysterious reticence, his Puerto Rican birth, and - most damning of all - his unabashed ambition. In the absence of warfare, Cassada struggles to prove his superiority as a pilot on routine flying procedures, one of which leads to the central tragedy of the novel. Brilliantly paced and haunting, the novel explores the tensions in a group of fighter pilots as much in conflict with themselves as with the enemy.

Biographie de l'auteur :

JAMES SALTER was born in 1926 and grew up in New York City. He graduated from West Point in 1945 and began a twelve-year stint in the U. S. Air Force, much of it as a fighter pilot. It was while assigned to air squadrons in Europe that he began writing. Following the publication of his first novel in 1956, Salter resigned from the armed forces. With the publication of his second novel in 1961, his reputation as an author was established.

Description du livre COUNTERPOINT, United States, 2002. Paperback. État : New. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. James Salter returned to his second novel, The Arm of Flesh-not to revise it but to entirely rewrite it. The result is this great new work, Cassada. . The lives of officers in an Air Force squadron in occupied Europe encompass the contradictions of military experience and the men s response to a young newcomer, bright and ambitious, whose fate is to be an emblem of their own. In Cassada, Salter captures the strange comradeship of loneliness, trust, and alienation among military men ready to sacrifice all in the name of duty and pride. After futile attempts at ordinary revision, Salter elected to begin with a blank page, to compose an entirely new novel based upon the characters and events of his second long unavailable novel, The Arm of Flesh. The result, Cassada, is a masterpiece, and the occasion of our hardcover edition was celebrated from coast to coast. `That opening image of the two lost planes lingers throughout, evoking the dark, perilous stuff that aviators and pilot-scribes, from Saint-Exupry and Richard Hillary to Hanna Reitsch, work in. `-Paul West, The Washington Post Book World`The air is thin in the heights through which Salter steers his characters, the prose moves at breakneck speed, and the book s emotional impact is devastating. Cassada is a masterpiece, a book in which men wage an elemental battle for survival against invisible forces. `-Mark Levine, Men s Journal. N° de réf. du libraire APC9781582431864
