CARVER COUNTRY. The World of Raymond Carver

New York: Scribner's, 1990. Bob Adelman. First edition. Hardcover. Small 4to. Photographs by Bob Adelman. Introduction by Tess Gallagher. When Raymond Carver died in August of 1988, all too early at 50, he left behind a remarkable legacy - eleven books of short stories and poems - that clearly establishes him as one of the finest of American writers. Carver Country presents the stark but human reality of one man's world, a man who was generous in his spirit and in his gifts, and who rose above his beginnings - but Raymond Carver never left his native ground or gave up his love for its terrain and its people. Raymond Carver's gritty texts, including his poems, short stories and unpublished letters, combined with Bob Adelman's photographs of Carver's people and haunts, re-create the world of this major writer, bringing to life the bleak, blue-collar towns, people, and places that became the inspiration for much of his work. Includes 113 duotone photos. 159 pp. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #15208
