This author came recommended from a friend, and it was very disappointing. All of them are half written, if that. They all seem like first drafts. The vocabulary and maturity is at about the dumb teenager level.

Great collection! Be sure to also check out, 'Beginners' which contains the prior to editing manuscript version of these stories. Carver's editor had quite the heavy hand.

I find his stories neither haunting nor interesting. I am just sorry he grew up I such an alcohol-soaked environment.
