Read by Peter Riegert


"One of the great short story writers of our time - of any time."
-- Philadelphia Inquirer

Few American writers are more admired than the late Raymond Carver.  In Where I'm Calling From, his highly-acclaimed short story collection, Carver displays an astounding genius.

Carver's stories are populated by characters living in an unforgiving world, suffering the burdens of displacement, divorce, despair.  These people snarl and bark and speak in bursts of rough-and tumble dialogue.  They are everybody, anybody, nobody.  Here, Carver has captured a heart-wrenchingly poignant world of real people with real problems, convincingly portrayed in a spare and gritty style.

A final testament to Carver's towering talent, Where I'm Calling From is a mesmerizing masterpiece of fiction, drama, and poetry.

Chef's House
Little Things
Fat Elephant

Amazon.com Review
The last story collection published during Carver's life (he died in 1988) contains most of his greatest hits from his earlier books, as well as seven stories that hadn't been collected up to that point. The breadth of the collection makes these 37 stories an extremely complete map of Carver territory, of a particular area of America and of the specific texture of the people Carver writes about -- their difficult attempts at survival in a world where happiness does not arrive wrapped up in neat packages but comes in far more peculiar parcels, if it comes at all.
