Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?
Author: Raymond Carver
Publisher: Vintage Random House
Release Date: January 21, 2021
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 us how humour and tragedy dwelt 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.
