About this Item

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. A New Path to the Waterfall was Carver's last book, and shows a writer telling the truth as best as he knows how in the time left to him. The sixty-odd poems in this collection are linked by Carver with selections from other writers, most notably Chekhov, whose work was an inspiration and a guide, and by the cumulative force of the life and death questions he poses in them. A New Path to the Waterfall is a testament to the transcendent strength of the human spirit. Bookseller Inventory # 24282
