I d never read Carver before and probably won t read even though I admired and liked his pithy just telling what happened style Most of these stories are slices of life drinking men s dark nights of the soul, the unhappy women in their lives even if the narrator is a woman , male violence, and the ultimate futility of existence But then there was one story called A Small Good Thing about the death of a child, and it knocked the wind out of me It was dark as well, but a lot worth reading the bo [...]

Finally got round to reading some Raymond Carver I didn t realise initially that this compilation was taken from various collections, selected by a filmmaker who made a movie out of these stories woven loosely together I would have preferred to read a collection of stories as originally intended by the author himself, so that I can try to make sense of the connections between the stories myself, rather than through the intermediary of a movie director Oh well.Anyway, I did enjoy these stories of [...]

If I could give this book ten stars, I would I LOVE Ray Carver s book s so freaking much I remember reading stories from this collection before I really decided to become an author, and his scope of storytelling made me write in my journal, even as an undergrad I wish I wrote that sentence About 100 times I can t even remember how many times I have read just this one book of his, let alone other Carver books, also If you ever think you might not be a writer, or might not want to be in this indus [...]

Stories about ordinary lives and ordinary people, where an extraordinary thing happens, or something not so extraordinary, but it becomes so by the action of the characters I liked them all, I like Carver s style of writing reminding me of Richard Yates, John Williams, even Richard Ford a bit matter of fact But what is striking is how these stories end They all finish at odd, but perfect points, as if the story isn t quite ended, but it is ended enough, as though Carver has allowed the reader sp [...]

This has been sitting on my DVD shelf for a few years now as the Criterion companion to the movie While I really enjoy the movie, I think I ended up buying it just because there was a book included in the packaging And thank goodnessCarver might have continued to go undetected by me as for the most part all I ve ever heard him discussed is a one sentence nod of approval in passing Not that I could have predicted it, but I m glad I ve waited to read his work because I might not have appreciated i [...]

At my birthday party, I mentioned to someone that I had recently read these stories, and two other people, seperate from each other and from me, started raving about how good Carver is It s true All I want to do after reading this guy s stories is drink and beat my wife Except beautifully.Sample quote, from Will You Please Be Quiet, Please For their honeymoon they drove to Guadalajara, and while they both enjoyed visiting the decayed churches and the poorly lighted museums and the afternoons the [...]

Non deve sorprenderci il fatto che Raymond Carver non abbia mai scritto romanzi troppo felice l incontro fra la narrazione breve e la miseria di un umanit semplice, di periferia, quasi sempre derelitta, fotografata nel suo tentativo di restare in piedi nonostante tutto, la cui vita priva degli avvenimenti straordinari e dei complessi intrecci che meglio si adattano ai grandi romanzi.Continua a leggere temperamente contempora

I think I had probably read most of the stories before in other collections and also seen the Altman movie based on the stories Carver s a brilliant writer, though very dark.

The big duh Raymond Carver is one of the masters of the contemporary short story The really great thing about Carver is that his stories are so easy you can blaze through them like a pop novel without missing a beat, and yet come out on the other end knowing you ve read something tremendous They are SIMPLE, but far from SIMPLISTIC.This collection is actually a movie to book edition In the 90s, Robert Altman director of M A S H and Nashville created a film that put together 9 of Carver s short st [...]

Oddly enough I didn t like this collection of stories too much at first I thought them abrupt lacking the dialogue silly unrealistic a bit clumsy Somewhere in the middle, after a few stories, Carver s style just insisted on being appreciated by the end of the book I was happily left wanting Quite a turn around For every story it s as though you re just picked up plunked in the middle of these character s lives for a short period of time, just enough to know something important about them, then [...]

My introduction to Carver a Greatest Hits album of sorts Going in I expected something similar to Bukowski drunks and affairs and domestic violence It certainly contained all of those things, but it had something Bukowski lacks a humanity A tenderness and an eye for life s little moments that can mean than is expressible in words Grieving parents sitting in a bakery eating cinnabuns or a woman attending a funeral of a girl she s never met.That s not to say Carver is in anyway sappy or sweet The [...]

Avevo gi letto Cattedrale , e in quest altra raccolta di racconti scelti da Robert Altman, che vi si ispirato per il film America Oggi ho ritrovato il Carver che ricordavo Pennellate di crudelt , di quotidianit , di vite di estranei cos umani e verosimili che potrebbero essere i nostri vicini di casa, o noi stessi.In realt lo stile asciutto di Carver e soprattutto i finali tronchi, taglienti e amari che lo caratterizzano sono in gran parte dovuti alla mano pesante del suo editor Ma ci non toglie [...]

It s interesting to read what a filmmaker chose from Carver s stories These are the most dramatic Carver stories I know, full of death, adultery, bar fights, rape, murder, abandoned dogs Nobody, say, sits around a table getting drunk for a really long time and talking about love But they re great And it s been long enough since I ve seen the movie that I didn t recall who played which character, or get frustrated with liberties that were taken A hint, perhaps, of Lyle Lovett in the baker who kee [...]

Carver can take the everyday and charge it with the profound He s got the knack for taking normal life and tearing it up into ragged pieces There is drama and nuance, and MENACE And he does it all in this fantastic minimalist voice If you like him, check out Andre Dubus.

I came across the film 1CShort Cuts 1D and made a bee line to the Raymond Carver books I have on my shelves Famous film director Robert Altman had chosen from a handful of his short stories to weave a story of woe and despair in 1980 19s Los Angeles That 19s it 13 the land of sun, sand, limosines, and a lot of drugs and alcohol Altman goes to the heart of Carver 19s stories and brings us all home Often, I suppose because Carver 19s stories are non traditional, most people who have read him are r [...]

My typical reaction when I finished reading any one of these stories in Short Cuts was to put the book down, puff my cheeks out, stare ahead into silence for a few moments, and let the story sink in In the case of Tell the Women We re Going, my reaction was shock than deep contemplation Carver writes some of the beautiful, powerful closing lines His prose doesn t contain any fireworks Each sentence is weighted carefully with a poetic grace His writing is simple, spare, elegant and without a was [...]

I know I m supposed to give this five stars, and it s just mind boggling I ve never read any Raymond Carver before this except So Much Water So Close to Home, but without knowing how important it was or being able to remember why I felt like I d seen the story take place right before my eyes which was because it was in the movie Short Cuts I finally realized when I saw this book at the library.I ve been given lots of quiet hints to read Raymond Carver and only recently picked up on them You d th [...]

I grabbed this collection because my library didn t have What we talk about available I didn t know about the film, either, and I didn t remember Carver being so unrelentingly brutal as these collected stories are I d like to reread some of the original collections soon because I am curious about whether the emotional atmosphere is always this gruelling.Someone said once that misogyny is domestic terrorism the stories in this collection illustrate that to a degree that made me nauseous I read an [...]

I read Short Cuts after reading What We Talk About and it s simply nowhere near as strong a collection, which seems fitting as it was compiled by Robert Altman and not Carver himself About the highlights that don t completely overlap A Small Good Thing is one of the highlights here, a elaborate version of The Bath from What We Talk About with names, emotions, and even a resolution provided this time around They re Not Your Husband is just about as Carver as anything he s ever writtten Jerry and [...]

So there are some stories in this collection that are altered versions of stories fromWhat We Talk about When We Talk About Love I was having difficulty with the chronology, though I believeWhat We Talk About pub d in 19981 came first.He also apparently rewrotesome of the stories inShort Cutswhen he wroteWhere I m Calling From The initial rewrites that I referred to a.k.a the ones I ve actually read include details and motives that contrast starkly with the spare characterizations from his secon [...]

I saw Short Cuts when it first came out in the theater in the early 90 s 3 hours is too long to sit in a theater I had just discovered Raymond Carver and I loved to see how Altman weaved together the stories Got the movie and this book from the library last weekend It didn t take me much longer to read the book than it took to watch the movie did I mention 3 hrs I enjoyed the movie some really amazing acting throughout but not as much as I enjoyed reading the original stories Carver s characters [...]

My first Carver, and definitely won t be my last.I love the simplicity in his writing, the kind of simplicity that can very well elucidate complicated things How is that, I m not sure It s like gliding smoothly until you hit a massive wall.Short Cuts tackled lives of people in marriage or has a family of their own although I wasn t sure about that one story It s a basic topic, to be honest But witnessing how vivid the horror and heartbreak were executed in the book, it kind of stretched my dimen [...]
