With this, his first collection of stories, Raymond Carver breathed new life into the American short story. Carver shows us the humor and tragedy that dwell in the hearts of ordinary people; his stories are the classics of our time.
Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His first collection of stories, <b>Will You Please Be Quiet, Please</b> (a National Book Award nominee in 1977), was followed by <b>What We Talk About When We Talk About Love,</b> <b>Cathedral</b> (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1984), and <b>Where I'm Calling From</b> 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 <b>A New Path to the Waterfall.</b>
