Carver is one of the best short story writers of our time. I have read the short stories of Hemingway, Steinbeck, Faulkner, etc., and Carver ranks with all of them. His stories are contemporary and deal with broken relationships, effects of drugs, the economy, etc., on ourselves and our families and neighbors. The stories have real characters that all of us can identify with.
I loved this collection. All of Carver's important works are here. I had read many of these stories in my mid 20's and I recently wanted to return to them. I took this collection with me to Port Angeles recently, Carver's resting place. I read his stories while I visited some of Carver's favorite haunts. The journey was fantastic.
Carver is a short story master, still.
