“The Poet’s Salter: An Appreciation of James Salter”

I love James Salter (1925 – 2015) and his fiction. I am a poet. Are these two facts in any way related? Or, to put it another way, “Is a writer’s writer’s writer really just a poet’s writer all along?”

This is the question I explore in the “The Poet’s Salter: An Appreciation of James Salter” an essay you can read now at Kenyon Review Online. My deep thanks to David Lynn for inviting me to blog for KR.
