5.0 out of 5 stars Saying somethings about what seem to be nothings, 21 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
In this collection of short stories, the author once again creates fiction out of everyday non-fiction, showing us that there is much more weight behind a gathering, a conversation, a movement than we initially believe, more to life than meets the eye. Each story peels back the curtain and allows us a view into what seem like everyday lives of everyday people, only to reveal the sensitive layers of those lives that we as outsiders only get to pontificate on from afar. The real truth is outed, the truth that in something as minuscule as a glance, there is a great story waiting to be told.

Read this work, devour all of Carver's short stories and marvel at a genius of his craft, for there are few as great at turning the seeming mundanity of life into several pages of pleasure, as Carver.
