9780099540328: Beginners

What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is Raymond Carver's most famous collection of short stories and remains one of the most influential pieces of modern literature to date. But the original, unedited manuscript, Beginners - published here for the first time, was almost fifty per cent longer than the published collection. This restored version of Carver's stories reveal what was previously unsaid, filling in the narrative silences that have both inspired and mystified readers for so long. Beginners is a fascinating insight into the aesthetic of a literary great and, in the questions it raises, may just spark off one of the great cultural debates of our times.

Review:

"...an extraordinary book, and probably the most influential story collection of the past 30 years"-- The Observer

"Here, for the first time, we can read the original versions. They are very good."--Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman

"Pure pleasure to read on its own, it is also fascinating to compare against the Lish version"--Victoria Moore, Daily Mail

"Carver's landscapes of motels, "negroes" and "longhairs" are documents from another era, but they are grubby, flawed little gems that still fascinate"--James Smart, The Guardian

"The surprise is that despite Carver’s well-earned reputation for spare, grainy prose that dipped into the hard-bitten lives of his characters, these stories have a richness of texture that complements Carver’s austerity of tone. Lish seems to have flattened Carver’s style, rather than sharpening it, and the tales in Beginners demonstrate just how great a writer Carver was"-- Financial Times

Book Description:

This fascinating collection contains the original, unedited stories Raymond Carver wrote for what became - at the hands of his editor Gordon Lish - What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
