What We Talk About When We Talk About Love - Raymond Carver It hardly needs saying from me that Carver is a magnificent writer. So consider it said.

It's been a long time, on a more personal note, since I've started and finished a book in (virtually) one sitting -- I guess it means that I've gotten better as a reader -- since I started rereading fiction about a year or 18 months ago, at any rate... and with no small help from my many GR friends. I've also started to learn how to read short-story collections...

Anyway -- it's a priviledge being able to read Carver - and I'm glad I didn't die before picking up Carver and, for that matter, Sherwood Anderson. I can only wonder how many other hundreds or thousands of gems I'm totally missing...
