Sample text

In 1986, for example, when pressed about the ways Yakima had shaped his youth, Carver became reticent and evaded the question by stating, “I don’t know what else to say about Yakima. I’m glad I left” (Gentry and Stull 135). The region had “its own particular beauty,” but Carver insisted that “it was much too small a place” and that he had to leave in order to become a writer (Gentry and Stull 135). It is this tension between affection and the need for escape that emerges in much of Carver’s work about the Yakima Valley.

The reviewer, who well understood the perils of literary stereotyping and the struggle to overcome addiction, was the ceaselessly self-reinventing writer Stephen King. In the wake of the Carver controversy and the publication of Beginners, studies of Carver’s work published before the year 2000 require varying degrees of reassessment. Introductory books such as Arthur Saltzman’s Understanding Raymond Carver (1988), Ewing Campbell’s Raymond Carver: A Study of the Short Fiction (1992), and Adam Meyer’s Raymond Carver (1995) are out of date in their coverage of the now expanded body of Carver’s work and the genetic relationships among the multiple published versions of many of his stories.
