What People are Saying About This

James Dickey

"Raymond Carver's stories have tremendous force, the power of a connecting left hook when the fist is filled with a roll of coins. Such an impact cannote be shakened off. Carver is extraordinary!"

Leonard Michaels

"Raymond Carver's stories are extraordinary in their language, their music and their huge terrifying revision of ordinary human life in this country. He is among the best authentically American writers we now have."
