Since posting the first Raymond Carver story the other day, I’ve since decided to do week long “features” of short story writers. I’m choosing first from those that I enjoy, simply because this is my basis for short story writing, but I’d love to hear suggestions & I would be happy to feature those as well.
I started with Raymond Carver, and I adore him, so I’m going to continue with him this week.
His biography can be found here, and the second story I want you guys to think about is Cathedral. While I don’t have a link or text to post here, I want to encourage you to find it, and read it. Carver anthologies are available all over the place. I know this isn’t the easiest way to get your hands on the story – me not giving it straight to you – but I promise you it’s worth it to go out and find it!
I’d like to provide a summary or some commentary, but I don’t want to ruin it for anyone. So, feel free to put your comments and thoughts about it below in the comments, and I can comment there as well.
