Does /lit/ like Raymond Carver?
He's the only short-story writer I can really relate to and I've been enjoying short stories lately. Joyce's short stories were actually pretty great also. What other short story authors are good?
for some reason I could never relate to his stories, I read a lot of his short stories about childhood and we even had that part of our lives in common, I hate saying this about anyone, but I feel that he tries too hard to be an American classic.
I find Chekov leaves me cold. Same with Dostyvseky. I don't think there bad I just don't give a fuck about russian nihilism or the church's relationship with peasants. Is that so wrong?
