A VINTAGE CONTEMPORARIES ORIGINAL

A literary event: Raymond Carver’s complete uncollected fiction and nonfiction, including the recently discovered “last” stories, found a decade after Carver’s death and published here in book form for the first time.

Call If You Need Me includes all of the prose previously collected in No Heroics, Please, four essays from Fires, and those five marvelous stories that range over the period of Carver’s mature writing and give his devoted readers a final glimpse of the great writer at work. The pure pleasure of Carver’s writing is everywhere in his work, here no less than in those stories that have alreadey entered the canon of modern literature.

“Carver’s prose, for all its simplicity, carries his mark everywhere. His tact and precision are marvelous.” —The New York Times Book Review



ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 
Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His first collection of stories, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please (a National Book Award nominee in 1977), was followed by What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Cathedral (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1984), and Where Im Calling From in 1988, when he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He died in August of that year, shortly after completing the poems of A New Path to the Waterfall.
