Beautiful language, but I was left feeling in some parts of the book like I would never understand what the cool kids were saying about the places they got to go.

I came to Salter's book because I heard he was a writer's writer. Truly, he is. Amazing imagery. Visceral and impacting. I took the vacation I haven't had in years!
