The last collection of stories by an author once described as the "American Chekhov". The seven stories are written in the simplest of styles, mirroring the rhythms of everyday life. In "Errand", the final story in the collection, Carver imagines the last days of his mentor - Chekhov.

"Carver's stories celebrate some lasting aspects of the human condition, however minimal, conjuring up a quality of fellow feeling, which gives the stories a compelling, dry-eyed poignancy, a melancholy but intensely moving authenticity" (William Boyd Daily Telegraph)
"This dazzling little collection is a treat" ( Guardian)
"All the stories in this collection are superb. Each sucks the reader, with magical speed, into the hearts of the characters, while seeming to say almost nothing about them. And they are not always gloomy, these hearts" ( Independent)
"A collection of stories it would be hard to forget" (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)
' Elephant is superb and suggests how much he still had to give' Ian McEwan
