From his experiences as a naval officer in battles off Okinawa during World War II Philip Bowman returns to America and finds a position as a book editor. He soon inhabits a world where marriages fail as affairs ignite alcohol reigns writers struggle and publishers hustle. It is a world in which to immerse himself a world of intimate connections and surprising triumphs. But the deal that Philip cannot seem to close is love: one marriage goes bad another fails to happen and finally he meets a woman who enthrals then betrays him setting him on a course he could never have imagined for himself. Written with Salter's signature economy of prose All That Is fiercely fluidly explores a life unfolding in a world on the brink of change: a dazzling sometimes devastating labyrinth of love and ambition of the small shocks and grand pleasures of being alive. All That Is is a sweeping seductive love story set in post-World War II America that tells of one man's great passions and regrets over the course of his lifetime and draws together the great themes of Salter's writing: warfare love sex and marriage and what it means to write.
