9780099530343: Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (Vintage Classics)

With this, his first collection, Carver breathed new life into the short story. In the pared-down style that has since become his hallmark, Carver showed how humour and tragedy dwell in the hearts of ordinary people, and won a readership that grew with every subsequent brilliant collection of stories, poems and essays that appeared in the last eleven years of his life.

Review:

"Carver has made himself the natural successor to his true mentor, Chekhov" ( Financial Times)

"He is alert to the unique, inconspicuous incident, when a life or a marriage may change course decisively" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"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)

"There is nobody else like him. In some ways his pared-down style is an extreme development of the Hemingway style, but Carver writes about women and the ways men relate to them far more convincingly than Hemingway ever did" ( Frank Kermode)

"Carver is a master of the clear, sharp, resonant detail" ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

'The American Chekhov' Sunday Times
