Light Years Paperback
by James Salter
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
Nedra and Viri are a married couple whose favoured life is centred around dinners, ingenious games with their children, enviable friends and near-perfect days passed skating on a frozen river or sunning on the beach.
But fine cracks are beginning to spread through the shimmering surface of their life - flaws that will eventually mar the lovely picture beyond repair.
Seductive, witty, tender and resonant, Light Years is an exquisite novel of lost lives and the elusiveness of happiness.

Review by Linus_Linus
Rereading, actually. Just to place Salter correctly in the hierarchy of american prose. Between Bellow and Mailer?
