Tietoja tekijästä

Born in 1938 in an Oregon logging town, Raymond Carver grew up in Yakima, From California he went to Iowa to attend the Iowa Writers Workshop. Soon, however, he returned to California, where he worked at a number of unskilled jobs before obtaining a teaching position. Widely acclaimed as the most näytä lisää important short story writer of his generation, Carver writes about the kind of lower-middle-class people whom he knew growing up. His characters are waitresses, mechanics, postmen, high school teachers, factory workers, door-to-door salesmen who lead drab lives because of limited funds. Critics have said that may have the most distinctive vision of the working class. Nominated posthumously for both a National Book Critics Circle Award (1988) and a Pulitzer Prize (1989) for Where I'm Calling From: New and Selected Stories (1988), Carver is one of a handful of writers credited with reviving the short story form. Some have put Carver in the tradition of Ernest Hemingway and Stephen Crane. Carver's stories tend to be brief, with enigmatic endings, although never erupting. Violence is often just below the surface. An air of quiet desperation pervades his stories, as Carver explores the collapse of human relationships in bleak circumstances. In later works, Carver strikes a note of redemption, unheard at the beginning of his career. But for readers who are not attuned to Carver's voice of resignation, these moments may sound sentimental and unconvincing. Carver died of lung cancer in 1988.

Where I’m Calling From is a masterpiece of short fiction, a collection of 37 stories by one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century, and my favourite author, Raymond Carver. The stories span his entire career, from his early works that explore the lives of ordinary people struggling with alcoholism, poverty, and loneliness, to his later works that show more hope and redemption. Carver’s style is minimalist, precise, and realistic, often using dialogue and details to reveal the emotions and conflicts of his characters. The stories deal with themes such as love, loss, addiction, family, and death, and often end with an epiphany or a twist. Some of the most famous stories in the book are “Cathedral”, “A Small, Good Thing”, and of course the devastating “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.” If you are new to Carver, this is an excellent place to begin. If you are a lifelong fan, this is the perfect book to add to your collection.… (lisätietoja)

Raymond Carver è uno di quegli autori che è facile incrociare quando si cerca ispirazione per qualcosa da leggere: è uno dei grandi della letteratura statunitense del Novecento e scriveva storie brevi, due ottimi requisiti per essere consigliati a unǝ lettorǝ in cerca del prossimo amore letterario. Eppure non aveva attirato abbastanza la mia attenzione: meno male è stato scelto come libro del mese per LiberTiAmo. È stato amore a prima lettura.

Me lo sono divorato questo fine settimana e sento ancora l’intenso sapore di vita sulla lingua. È difficile descrivere cosa si prova nel leggere questi racconti perché è come mettere nero su bianco cosa si prova a essere vivз e a fare delle esperienze in quanto essere umano vivo: sai com’è a un livello istintivo perché sei vivǝ, ma spiegarlo?

È qui che entra in gioco la letteratura – e le arti, in generale: la bellezza di Cattedrale è tutta qui. Riesce a descrivere quello che normalmente non siamo in grado di esprimere a parole e lo fa con quella semplicità che sembra alla portata di chiunque, ma che in realtà è uno dei risultati più difficili da raggiungere per unǝ scrittorǝ.

Non ho altro da aggiungere: è uno di quei libri da leggere e non da raccontare, tanto più che è una lettura relativamente veloce. Buttatevi, che è bello!
