Where I'm Calling from
Where I'm Calling from | Raymond Carver
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"What We Talk About When We Talk About Love," and earlier Carver volumes, along with seven new works previously unpublished in book form.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. "From the eBook edition.""

I love shelfies and your contest , so here‘s my post. I am redoing all the shelves as I liberated a big stash from storage .This is a 3 shelf in transition, I think it will be journalism and plays eventually, now just a jumble.

SamHeartCoffee Pretty shelfie! 1y

MicheleinPhilly Just a jumble is how my shelves are organized. The best I can do is fiction/non and read/unread. Thanks for entering! 1y

December 6: Nothing Christmassy about Raymond Carver, except that this signed book was a very kind gift about ten years ago. Plus, bells! 🔔 #booksandbells #decktheshelves @Tiffy_Reads & @JoeStalksBeck

Where I'm calling from,
love ain't nothing but sex misspelled.
This is running for your life,
in search of the miraculous.

#junebookbugs #publishedinthe1980s There is something about a Raymond Carver short story. He writes about the marginalized,the broken-hearted, the addicted .He knows where to put the knife and get it close to the bone.Just stunning stuff . This was his last collection published in 1988 he passed away the same year at age 50.

Cinfhen Not familiar with this author 😕 3y
andrew61 @Cinfhen he's a short story writer, mainly focussing on ordinary lives. There is a film 'short cuts' based on some of his stories. He's worth trying and cos its short stories you could try without committing to a novel. 3y
Cinfhen The film short cuts sounds familiar 😊I'm not a fan of short stories but I'm willing to try... 3y

The #peachbooks are few and far between on my shelves but they are good ones - like this title (it is peach not beige, I swear!)
I still remember the summer course I took where Carver's stories made my path clear - I could only be an English major once I read him!

Digging around on my book shelves for my next read, I found this Carver collection of short stories. From the back cover - "These stories overflow with the danger, excitement, mystery and possibility of life." Yes, please.

shawnmooney Love love LOVE this collection. Especially 'Cathedral,' one of my favorite short stories of all time! 4y
laurenm @shawnmooney great to know! just finished the first story. so far so good. 4y
