Award-winning novelist and short story writer James Salter visited Amsterdam to discuss his latest work. His book, a collection of ten exceptional short stories entitled Last Night, has recently been translated and published in Dutch. Salter is widely regarded as one of the finest living practitioners of his craft by readers, critics and fellow writers. A World War II fighter pilot and PEN/Faulkner Award winner, Salter has been called ‘simply one of the best writers in (America)’. The evening was moderated by NRC Handelsblad journalist Jan Donkers.
