Cattedrale Kindle Ô Hardcover

Cattedrale It was morning in America when Raymond Carver s Cathedral came out in , but the characters in this dry collection of short stories from the forgotten corners of land of opportunity didn t receive much sunlight Nothing much happens to the subjects of Carver s fiction, which is precisely why they are so harrowing nothingness is a daunting presence to overcome And rarely do they prevail, but the loneliness and quiet struggle the characters endure provide fertile ground for literary triumph, particularly in the hands of Carver, who was perhaps in his best form with this effort
