In these stories, some only three or four pages long, plots are set in motion with astonishing speed, narration is colloquial and laconic, dialogue reveals an ear for the way people speak, and every story packs a devastating emotional charge.

This powerful collection of stories, set in the mid-West among the lonely men and women who drink, fish and play cards to ease the passing of time, was the first by Raymond Carver to be published in the UK. With its spare, colloquial narration and razor-sharp sense of how people really communicate, the collection was to become one of the most influential literary works of the 1980s.
