Praise

“Carver’s fiction is so spare in manner that it takes a time before one realizes how completely a whole culture and a whole moral condition is represented by even the most seemingly slight sketch. This second volume of stories is clearly the work of a full-grown master.” —Frank Kermode

“Raymond Carver’s America is…clouded by pain and the loss of dreams, but it is not as fragile as it looks. It is a place of survivors and a place of stories…. [Carver] has done what many of the most gifted writers fail to do: He has invented a country of his own, like no other except that very world, as Wordsworth said, which is the world to all of us.” —Michael Wood, front page, The New York Times Book Review

“Splendid…. The collection as a whole, unlike most, begins to grow and resonate in a wonderful cumulative effect.” —Tim O’Brien, Chicago Tribune Book World

“Carver not only enchants, he convinces.” —J.D. Reed, Time
