More About the Author

Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His father was a saw-mill worker and his mother was a waitress and clerk. He married early and for years writing had to come second to earning a living for his young family. Despite, small-press publication, it was not until Will You Please Be Quiet Please? appeared in 1976 that his work began to reach a wider audience. This was the year in which he gave up alcohol, which had contributed to the collapse of his marriage. In 1977 he met the writer Tess Gallagher, with whom he shared the last eleven years of his life. During this prolific period he wrote three collections of stories, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Cathedral and Elephant. Fires, a collection of essays, poems and stories, appeared in 1985, followed by three further collections of poetry. In 1988 he completed the poetry collection A New Path to the Waterfall.

Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of Ray Carver for many years and ordered this book on a whim. I am very glad I did. This book is chock full of interviews with Ray about his writing at various points in his career. It's obvious he liked doing interviews and his answers are always very thoughtful; some are donwright inspiring if you're a writer. The book is a good look in the life and mind of one of America's best short story writers in the last 50 years.

If you like Carver and I do, then this insight into the man is invaluable. Included are bio snippets as well as his thoughts on his art. Enough said. If Ray Carver moves you, you need this.
