A definitive edition of Raymond Carver's legendary and controversial stories, including never before seen versions.
Raymond Carver (1938-1988), the author of such landmark collections as Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (1976), What We Talk About When We Talk About Love (1981), and Cathedral (1983), was perhaps the most influential short-story writer of his generation.
"The Library of America Collected Stories is a fascinating event . . . if you haven't read it you cannot claim, in the fullest sense, to have read Raymond Carver." -- Times Literary Supplement
