Description

Arguing that, despite having worked primarily in "minor" genres, Raymond Carver merits consideration as a major American writer, The Carver Chronotype reveals Carver's pivotal role in American minimalist fiction. It contextualizes Carver's work in terms of the time and place of its construction and represention to reveal it as fiction that transcends the lower middle class North American relity that it documents.
