softly bruising your soul, 18 April 2003
Read all of Raymond Carver's short stories. To begin there may not seem that much to them, but if you read slowly, taking in each of his precise words, you'll find the true impact of these heart wrenching stories- often a day or two later.
Carver shows us our quietest, loneliest moments. He makes no judgements, he just says: 'Here we are.' His short stories are gifts to humanity. Take the gift.
