Where I'm Calling From by Raymond Carver [TRADE PAPERBACK / 1989]
TRADE PAPERBACK  VINTAGE CONTEMPORARIESTrade paperback in excellent condition. Some very mild shelf wear and subtle tanning to pages.
The last story collection published during Carver's life (he died in 1988) contains most of his greatest hits from his earlier books, as well as seven stories that hadn't been collected up to that point.
The breadth of the collection makes these 37 stories an extremely complete map of Carver territory, of a particular area of America and of the specific texture of the people Carver writes about — their difficult attempts at survival in a world where happiness does not arrive wrapped up in neat packages but comes in far more peculiar parcels, if it comes at all.
