What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, by Raymond Carver

1974. Raymond Carver’s simple powerful tales magically come alive in your hands.

Carver slips inside his characters with such skill and grace that you don’t read so much as eavesdrop.

These stories are of intense moments for troubled people.  Or they are the stories troubled people tell others to pretend their lives are in balance when they aren’t.

The spare yet elegant writing illustrates lives at the near-boil, poised or paralysed for choice.
