about this book

With his first collection of stories, Raymond Carver breathed new life into the American short story. Here, Carver shows us the humor and tragedy that dwell in the hearts of ordinary people; his stories are classics of our time.

"The whole collection is a knockout. Few writers can match Raymond Carver's entwining style and language."--Dallas Morning News

"Carver's remarkable talent for short fiction proves itself in the movement of his stories from beginning to end...His tight laconic stories illuminate a kind of life that sophisticated fiction seldom deals with without condescension or sentimentality."--New York Review of Books
