What can be said about Carver? He was better than Hemingway. In fact, I find many writers better than Hemingway, but Carver stands among the best. He did minimalist prose better than anyone else, and perhaps he has his editor to thank for that, but he's still great. He and John O'Hara deserve much much more praise.
Anything that came out of "Cathedral" is fantastic, but there's also "They're Not Your Husband," "Intimacy," "A Small, Good Thing," "Tell the Woman We're Going..." I could go on and on.. Just do your brain a favor and read Carver.
