    By the time of his early death in 1988, Raymond Carver had established himself as one of the great practitioners of the American short story. Where I'm Calling From, his last collection, encompasses classic stories from Cathedral, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, and earlier Carver volumes, along with seven new works previously unpublished in book form.

    Story

    I recently became interested in short stories because I think it’s important to get a visual experience of what our natural everyday language looks like. We read to educate ourselves about so many topics but in our daily life we use ordinary language like kinds of things Ray Carver writes about. I think that reading that style of natural conversation we use might ultimately make us better speakers and help us form our thoughts more clearly and efficiently. In my opinion,Ray Carver is a master of this ordinary style of our language; Norman Dietz has a great voice as a narrator.
