    Where I’m Calling From Epub µ Where I’m Epub / where book, i’m free, calling book, from free, Where I’m book, Where I’m Calling From EpubA collection of short stories from a writer considered by many to be one the master of the modern short story Many of the stories have a flavor of the author’s youth let’s say the 1940’s and 50’s since Carver was born in 1938 and died at age 50 even though they were written in the 1970’s and 1980’s The stories have acquired a patina of quaintness from that era boys on bikes going fishing in the local creek door to door salesmen everyone smokes everyone drinks scotch the mailman knows everyone on his route people call their neighbor “Mr Johnson” But these are stories of modern life usually with a raw edge divorce alcoholism infidelity nasty neighbors Great stories
