This week in the magazine, Nick Paumgarten Profiles the novelist James Salter, whose first novel in thirty years, "All That Is," was published this month. Here, Nick Paumgarten and the fiction editor Deborah Treisman talk with Michael Agger about why Salter isn't better known, his recurring themes (including sex, marriage, and the heroic code of military men), and his unique prose style, which combines, as Treisman puts it, "ornateness and bluntness." Also, the night-thoughts of Lucie Brock-Broido.
