Review:

"Carver is a master; his stories are word perfect. His sentences stalk out meaning, following a trail of clues with patient care and painful anticipation. Fires [is] an indispensable volume and provides further proof of Carver's stature as a major American writer" ( New Statesman)

"These stories are perfect in pitch and tone. However harrowing their subject, or broken their characters, all of them revive one's faith in the redemptive power of straight story-telling" (Bruce Chatwin)

"Carver's poetry is non-metrical, free as prose... It works well and reads beautifully" ( Independent)
