Reviews

"Extraordinary . . . at once tender, exultant, unabashedly sexual, sensual, and profoundly sad. Light Years is a masterpiece."
--Elizabeth Benedict, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Remarkable. . . . Salter celebrates the silver-and-golden bitterness of life. Light Years . . . becomes an unexpectedly moving ode to beautiful lives frayed by time."
--James Wolcott, Esquire

"[A] twentieth-century masterpiece. At once iridescent, lyrical, mystical and magnetic."
--Bloomsbury Review

"An absolutely beautiful, monstrous, important book."
--Joy Williams
