At 87-years-old, James Salter has written what is likely to be his final novel, 'All That Is'. The book draws together the great themes of his lifetime's work - war, love, sex, marriage and what it means to write.

It is a sweeping, seductive love story set in post-Second World War America. Spanning decades it tells of one man's passions and regrets.

James Salter is one of modern America's finest writers and this is a unique opportunity to hear him in London. He talks to Southbank Centre's Head of Literature and Spoken Word James Runcie about his life and work.
