    Don't Save Anything -...

    "In Don’t Save Anything . . . Kay Eldredge Salter assembles her late husband’s bread-and-butter journalism—yet how delicious good bread and butter can be! . . . As always, Salter emphasizes simple, vivifying details."  —Michael Dirda, The Washington Post  One of the greatest writers of American sentences in our literary history, James Salter’s acute and glimmering portrayals of characters are built with a restrained and poetic style. The author of several memorable works of fiction—including Dusk and Other Stories, which won the PEN/Faulkner Award—he is also celebrated for his memoir Burning the Days and many nonfiction essays.  In her preface, Kay Eldredge Salter writes, “Don’t Save Anything is a volume of the best of Jim’s nonfiction—articles published but never collected in one place until now. Though those many boxes were overflowing with papers, in the end it’s not really a matter of quantity. These pieces reveal some of the breadth and depth of Jim’s endless interest in the world and the people in it . . . One of the great pleasures in writing nonfiction is the writer’s feeling of exploration, of learning about things he doesn’t know, of finding out by reading and observing and asking questions, and then writing it down. That’s what you’ll find here.”  This collection gathers Salter’s thoughts on writing and profiles of important writers, observations of the changing American military life, evocations of Aspen winters, musings on mountain climbing and skiing, and tales of travels to Europe that first appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, People, Condé Nast Traveler, the Aspen Times, among other publications.

    Iceland is an island of multiple identities in constant flux, just like its unruly, volcanic ground. Shaped as much by storytelling as it is by tectonic activity, Iceland's literary heritage is one of Europe's richest – and most ancient. 
     
    Iceland: A Literary Guide for Travellers takes the literary-minded traveller (either in person or in an armchair) on a vivid and illuminating journey. It follows Iceland's many stories that have been passed down through the generations: told and retold by sheep farmers, psalm-writers, travelling reverends, independence fighters, scholars and hedonists. From the captivating Norse myths, which continue to inspire contemporary authors such as A.S. Byatt, to gripping Scandinavian crime fiction and Game of Thrones, via Jules Verne and J.R.R Tolkien, W.H. Auden and Seamus Heaney, Iceland's influence has spread far beyond its frozen shores.  
     
    Peopled by Norse maidens and witches, elves and outlaws and taking the reader and traveller from Reykjavik and the Bay of Smokes to the remote Westfjords and desolate highlands, this is an enthralling portrait of the Land of Ice and Fire.

    A critically-acclaimed Japanese poet and translator reveals his life story in captivating verse.   Acclaimed Japanese poet Yorifumi Yaguchi has turned his literary focus to his own experiences as a child growing up on the island of Honshu in the late 1930s and ’40s. When life became incomprehensible, Yaguchi put those experiences into poems. His audience grew beyond Japan—and included Robert Bly, Denise Levertov, and William Stafford, who soon became his friends.   Recognized in Japan as a major poet and also as an outspoken advocate for peace, Yaguchi’s Wing-Beaten Air uses his extraordinary voice to tell his life story in prose and poetry.
