Forgotten Kings

'Forgotten Kings' is an account of James Salter's first meeting and dealings with writer Irwin Shaw, taken from Salter's memoir 'Burning the Days', and ending with Shaw's illness and death.

'I touched his hair, something I had never done in life. It was like my own, curly, gray. I wanted to remember everything and at the same time never to have seen it... He was much to me, father, great force, friend. He lived a life superior to mine, a life I envied and could barely fathom, his courage, loves, embrace, were all so large. We lived, I felt, in their shadow..'.
