Reviews

  • Better known for his short stories, Raymond Carver was also an accomplished poet, as this superbly presented collection attests

    Anthony Quinn, Harpers & Queen
  • The cumulative effect is exhilarating: happiness, yes, but about as far as you can get from the bland, cosmic gruntlement currently being peddled by so many American poets

    Times Literary Supplement
  • A year after the American writer's abrupt death, Salman Rushdie concluded a review of A New Path to the Waterfall, a final verse collection, by urging: 'Read everything Raymond Carver ever wrote.' It's very good advice

    Irish Times
  • What is never lost - or lost sight of- is the primacy of experience and the most direct way of finding its expression... The urgency of the artist not to trivialise, but to find the essence; plain language in which to lay bare the terror and beauty of plain lives

    John Harvey
