James Salter, author of prize-winning books including "Dusk and Other Stories," has received a lifetime achievement award for short fiction.
The PEN/Faulkner Foundation announced Monday that the 86-year-old Salter has won the 25th annual PEN/Malamud Award.
Judges praised Salter for "creating sentences that spark and make stories burn." Besides "Dusk," his books include the story collection "Last Night," the novel "A Sport and a Pastime" and the memoir "Burning the Days."
Salter will be given $5,000 for the PEN/Malamud prize. It's named for the late Bernard Malamud, author of "The Fixer" and "The Natural."
