James Salter Sings to Clams, Likes Worcestershire in his Martinis
Things I learned about author James Salter while reading Nick Paumgarten's excellent profile of him in The New Yorker:
"He has been known to sing 'American Pie' to clams when he shucks them."
"He measures out his martinis precisely, down to a ritual drop of Worcestershire."
"He always diligently checks the bill at restaurants."
