Book Description
Raymond CarverΓΓé¼Γäós spare dramas of loneliness, despair, and troubled relationships
breathed new life into the American short story of the 1970s and ΓΓé¼Γäó80s.
In collections such as Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? and What We
Talk About When We Talk About Love, Carver wrote with unflinching exactness
about men and women enduring lives on the knife-edge of poverty and
other deprivations. Beneath his pared-down surfaces run disturbing,
violent undercurrents. Suggestive rather than explicit, and seeming
all the more powerful for what is left unsaid, CarverΓΓé¼Γäós stories were
held up as exemplars of a new school in American fiction known as minimalism
or ΓΓé¼┼ôdirty realism,ΓΓé¼┬¥ a movement whose wide influence continues to this
day. CarverΓΓé¼Γäós stories were brilliant in their detachment and use of
the oblique, ambiguous gesture, yet there were signs of a different
sort of sensibility at work. In books such as Cathedral and the later
tales included in the collected stories volume Where IΓΓé¼Γäóm Calling From,
Carver revealed himself to be a more expansive writer than in the earlier
published books, displaying Chekhovian sympathies toward his characters
and relying less on elliptical effects.
In gathering all of CarverΓΓé¼Γäós stories, including early sketches and posthumously
discovered works, The Library of AmericaΓΓé¼Γäós Collected Stories provides
a comprehensive overview of CarverΓΓé¼Γäós career as we have come to know
it: the promise of Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? and the breakthrough
of What We Talk About, on through the departures taken in Cathedral
and the pathos of the late stories. But it also prompts a fresh consideration
of Carver by presenting Beginners, an edition of the manuscript of What
We Talk About When We Talk About Love that Carver submitted to Gordon
Lish, his editor and a crucial influence on his development. LishΓΓé¼Γäós
editing was so extensive that at one point Carver wrote him an anguished
letter asking him not to publish the book; now, for the first time,
readers can read both the manuscript and published versions of the collection
that established Carver as a major American writer. Offering a fascinating
window into the complex, fraught relationship between writer and editor,
Beginners expands our sense of Carver and is essential reading for anyone
who cares about his achievement.
