Where I'm Calling from

Selected Stories

By the time of his early death in 1988, Raymond Carver had established himself as one of the great practitioners of the American short story, a writer who had not only found his own voice but imprinted it in the imaginations of thousands of readers. Where I'm Calling From, his last collection, encompasses classic stories from Cathedral, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, and earlier Carver volumes, along with seven new works previously unpublished in book form. Together, these 37 stories give us a superb overview of Carver's life work and show us why he was so widely imitated but never equaled.
Rezension
The summation of a triumphant career from "one of the great short story writers of our time--of any time." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)"[Raymond Carver is] one of the true contemporary masters." -The New York Review of Books"[Carver's stories] can...be counted among the masterpieces of American fiction." -Irving Howe, The New York Times Book Review"[These stories] overflow with the danger, excitement, mystery and possibility of life.... Carver is a writer of astonishing compassion and honesty, his eye set on describing and revealing the world as he sees it. His eye is so clear, it almost breaks your heart." -The Washington Post Book World
