Author Info
Raymond Carver
Raymond Carver was born and died in the Pacific Northwest, and much of his fiction is set in his native region. He wrote about the class into which he was born, the working poor: waitresses, laborers, bus drivers, people trying desperately to stay alive. Carver himself was married and a father of two before he was 20 years old; he and his first wife worked at low-paying jobs struggling to make some kind of living until Carver began to publish his fiction and teach creative writing at various universities. He struggled for many years with alcoholism and often wrote about characters who drink too much and lose control of their lives. Divorced from his first wife, he married the poet Tess Gallagher in 1988. He died soon after of cancer. Carver is remembered for his gritty realism, and for his clipped, repetitive style.
