A Sport and a Pastime 

Author: James Salter


The sex scenes in this book are both desperate and beautiful, which makes the plot seem to exist outside of time. A Sport and a Pastime could have been written yesterday, in the 1900s, or even far in the future. That’s how timeless this story is.

“As nearly perfect as any American fiction I know,” is how Reynolds Price (The New York Times) described this classic that has been a favorite of readers, both here and in Europe, for almost forty years. Set in provincial France in the 1960s, it is the intensely carnal story – part shocking reality, part feverish dream – of a love affair between a footloose Yale dropout and a young French girl. There is the seen and the unseen – and pages that burn with a rare intensity.
