Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His first collection of stories, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please (a National Book Award nominee in 1977), was followed by What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Cathedral (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1984), and Where I'm Calling From in 1988, when he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He died August 2, 1988, shortly after completing the poems of A New Path to the Waterfall.
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
