Carver, whose work has been called “exciting, mysterious, dangerous, and full of the possibility of life,” published this collection of twelve short stories in 1985.
This collection was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The characters in these short stories come from the forgotten corners of the land of opportunity that didn't receive much sunlight. Nothing much happens to the subjects of Carver's fiction, which is precisely why they are so harrowing: nothingness is a daunting presence to overcome. Rarely do they prevail, but the loneliness and quiet struggle the characters endure provide fertile ground for literary triumph, particularly in the hands of Carver, who was perhaps in his best form with this effort.
Join Neil Schulhoff for a discussion of acclaimed authors whose works are hidden gems. Enrollment recommended.
