When he died in August 1988, Raymond Carver had just published what were
thought to be his last stories in the collection entitled Elephant and his
own collection of stories, Where I'm Calling from. Five previously
unpublished stories have recently been discovered, and this new volume
brings together all of his uncollected fiction, including a fragment of an
unfinished novel, five early stories, and all of his non-fiction prose.
Three of these late-found stories are fine examples of Carver's late, open
style, while two date from his middle period. The non-fiction prose
includes all of his essays, together with occasional commentary on his own
fiction and poetry, writings on the American short story, and reviews of
work by his contemporaries, among them Donald Barthelme, Richard Brautigan,
Jim Harrison, Thomas McGuane and Richard Ford. Also included is Carver's
latest essay Friendship, about a London reunion with Richard Ford and
Tobias Wolff. Call If You Need Me takes us into Carver's workshop, and
alongside All of Us: The Collected Poems and Where I'm Calling from: The
Selected Stories completes the picture of one of the most original writers
in the English language of his generation.
