Solo Faces by James Salter
Book DescriptionRand lives free; lean, pure and defiant, the world has little influence on him. His passion is climbing - the mountains, the huge vertical faces. There, where storms, snow, or rockfall can kill, he finds his happiness, sometimes climbing with others, sometimes alone. This is a novel of obsession and where it leads. Rand, not intending it, becomes suddenly famous for a daring rescue in the Alps. What happens when passion is spent and what becomes of heroes is revealed in this terse and powerfully written novel.

Set in provincial France in the 1960s, this is the intensely carnal story?part shocking reality, part feverish dream ?of a love affair between a footloose Yale dropout and a young French girl. There is the seen and the unseen?and pages that burn with a rare intensity.
