Where I'm Calling From : New and Selected Stories by Raymond Carver

Where i'm calling.jpg

Raymond Carver writes short stories. His short stories are short. They read fast. Mostly. Some poetry too. He also writes short sentences. His characters drink. They smoke. Heck, they love. They even hate. Sometimes they hurt the ones they also love. Duality. Some say he copied Hemingway. I'm not sure. I see the similarity in style. His sparse style leaves his stories ambiguous at times. I like that. Interpretation is essential in writing. This fine collection has 37 stories. Seven are new to publication in a book. Give him a try. He is the reigning master of the American short story. He died in 1988. He lives on though. Genius is eternal.
