What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Prompted by a recent review of Nathan Englander's book of a nearly similar title, I re-read this slim collection I had from grad school.
Why do some short stories leave you saying "huh?" while others hit you in the solar plexus?
This collection reveals love in its darker forms, often fueled by alcohol and accompanied by violence.
Lust, loss, abandonment, desperation, resentment, revenge.
