Raymond Carver: A Writer’s Life by Carol Sklenicka

Published: November 2009, Scribner

ISBN: 9780743262453

The Recommend:

Like so many great writers, Carver wasn’t all that nice.

But then again, he was on the sauce.

More interesting is the exploration of his destructive, symbiotic relationship with editor Gordon Lish.

Fascinating, heartbreaking and at times inspiring.
