It turns out that Carver’ What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is a short story collection that focuses primarily on working class hardships and strained or failing relationships, known in particular for its precise prose and spare dialogue.
The grace they had over me would take days to die down. I actually find his overt symbolism and naked prose annoying and overrated.
Not going to try Proust any time soon then? Fear of being late and fear of arriving before anyone else.
