Perhaps enough Salter for a while. Finished Part I of his memoir, Burning the Days. Reminds me somehow of Conrad, why not sure. Probably never thought I would read so much about flying jets during the Korean war. Someone will have to write a thesis about the military esthetic in Salter's work. Conrad, Melville, maybe it is the all-male world portrayed. Jet pilots, sea captains, crews, military hierarchies, alpha anxieties and performances.
