    This prodigiously rich collection suggests that Raymond Carver was not only America's finest writer of short fiction, but also one of its most large-hearted and affecting poets. Like Carver's stories, the more than 300 poems in All of Us are marked by a keen attention to the physical world; an uncanny ability to compress vast feeling into discreet moments; a voice of conversational intimacy, and an unstinting sympathy.

Avec une écriture toute en pudeur, les dix-sept nouvelles de "Parlez-moi d'amour" laissent transparaître une humanité fragile et attachante. Très reconnu aux États-Unis, Raymond Carver signe un recueil d'une grande sensibilité.

    "Les vitamines du bonheur" est un recueil de douze nouvelles considéré comme le chef d'œuvre de l'auteur. Il nous fait vivre des tranches de vie intemporelles, loin des clichés du rêve américain. "Tout le monde rêve. Si tu ne rêvais pas, tu deviendrais fou. J’ai lu des trucs là-dessus. C’est une soupape. Les gens rêvent quand ils dorment. Ou alors, ils deviennent dingues. Mais moi, quand je rêve, je rêve de vitamines. Tu comprends ce que je te dis ?"
