Reader recommendation: Burning the Days

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I am reading Burning the Days by James Salter. He calls this book a recollection. It is bits and pieces of a lifetime, expressed exquisitely:  an eye-opening word or phrase here, a jolt of memory there. I highly recommend it.
