More Description

"A dozen stories that overflow with the danger, excitement, mystery and possibility of life...Carver is a writer of astonishing compassion and honesty...his eye set only on describing and revealing the world as he sees it. His eye is so clear, it almost breaks your heart."--Jonathan Yardley, "Washington Post Book World"
"Cathedral contains astonishing achievements, which bespeaks a writer expanding his range of intentions."--"The Boston Globe"
"A few of Mr. Carver's stories can already be counted among the masterpieces of American fiction...Cathedral shows a gifted writer struggling for a larger scope of reference, a finer touch of nuance." --Irving Howe, front page, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Clear, hard language so right that we shiver at the knowledge we gain from it." --Thomas Williams, "Chicago Tribune Book World"
"Carver is more than a realist; there is, in some of his stories, a strangeness, the husk of a myth." --"Los Angeles Times"
