James Salter is one of the finest writers of our time. From his first published story in the Paris Review in 1968, Salter's work in the form has been universally acclaimed: five have appeared in O. Henry collections, Dusk and Other Stories won the 1989 PEN/Faulkner Award, and more recently he was the recipient of PEN USA's 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2010 REA Prize for the short story, and the 2012 PEN/Malamud Award. Each indelible narrative in the Collected Stories is marked by Salter's great literary grace, his ability to show the subtleties of a character or situation with precision, and his equally assured ability to command reversals of fortune or shocking revelations. The stories concern men and women in their most intimate moments, struggling with loss, desire, or the burden of memory. A fallen rider lies in a field, alone but for the knowledge that these may be her last twenty minutes. A man assisting in his wife's suicide is devastated by the aftermath. Two New York attorneys on a trip to Italy discover that their recent wealth affords them the possibility of a higher life, the reality of which is somewhat sordid. A young woman is unable to share a life-changing piece of news with her closest friends. Including his two published collections, Dusk and Other Stories (1988) and Last Night (2005), and the previously uncollected 'Charisma', this volume confirms indisputably that 'James Salter is a master of the great American short story'(The Times).… (mais)

James Salter was me eerlijk gezegd onbekend. Het is een van de weinige keren dat ik door de samenvatting op de achterflap en de commentaren tot de aankoop van een boek verleid ben. En ik beklaag het me niet. Salter schrijft erg "onthecht": sober, droog beschrijvend, en soms erg filmisch. Ik vond het opvallend dat in de eerste helft van dit bundel alle verhalen rond vrouwen draaiden en vanuit hun standpunt werden beschreven. Salter is een meester in het beschrijven of suggereren wat niet uitgesproken is: veelal melancholie naar gemiste kansen, meewarigheid over de futiliteit van het leven, maar ook bedrog, verborgen agenda's. Het heel korte verhaal (8 blz) "Dusk" is wat dat betreft onovertroffen. Niet alles was van hetzelfde niveau, maar er staken enkele onverbloemde pareltjes in. Ik denk dat ik nog wel meer van hem zal lezen. ( )

In alle verhalen staat de eenzaamheid van de mens centraal. Salter schrijft over levens die zich achter de façade van het bestaat afspelen. Hij doet dat met een simpele pennenstreek; zoals Rembrandt tekende, zo schets hij levens die de mens veelal verborgen wil houden.
Een mooi voorbeeld daarvan is het eerste verhaal uit de bundel “Schemering”: Am Strande von Tanger, waarin de personages absoluut geen contact met elkaar hebben en bij alles wat zij meemaken volledig onbereikbaar blijven voor elkaar.
In “Stof” wordt een personage slechts geduid met de mededeling: “ Er viel niet na te gaan wat hij allemaal wist. Hij was alleen, in de verre velden van zijn leven”.

Het moet gezegd: de verhalen zijn wel allemaal variaties op eenzelfde thema doch door verschillende omstandigheden en een zekere variëteit aan invalshoeken vervelen zij echter nooit.

Wie eerder werk van Salter heeft gelezen ( in mijn geval “Spel en Tijdverdrijf” en “Dwars door de dagen”) gaat met deze bundel niet op avontuur maar ontmoet wederom een schrijver van formaat. ( )
