Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?, Paperback Book


With this, his first collection, Carver breathed new life into the short story.

In the pared-down style that has since become his hallmark, Carver showed how humour and tragedy dwell in the hearts of ordinary people, and won a readership that grew with every subsequent brilliant collection of stories, poems and essays that appeared in the last eleven years of his life.
