My first publication was a poem. So I suppose on my tombstone I'd be very pleased if they put 'Poet and short-story writer - and occasional essayist', in that order." This complete edition allows readers to experience the range and overwhelming power of Carver's poetry for the first time. It brings together in the order of their American publication the poems of Fires (1985), Where Water Comes Together with Other Water (1986), Ultramarine (1988), A New Path to the Waterfall (1989) and No Heroics, Please (1991). For readers who know Carver's middle period only through his selected poems, In a Marine Light (1988), it includes the windfall of 51 poems not previously published in Britain. All of Us is edited by Professor William L. Stull of the University of Hartford, and introduced with an essay on Raymond Carver's methods of composition by his widow, the poet Tess Gallagher.Hide synopsis

Now considered a contemporary American classic. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. As the title suggests, the book collects Raymond Carver's entire poetic output, a staggering 300 poems in all, in a handsome and treasurable volume, as one's "favorite" collection of poems ought to be. It is very beautifully produced on archival uncoated stock paper in the United States and comes with a moving Introduction by the poet Tess Gallagher, Carver's heir and lifelong partner. Gallagher describes Carver's poems as "the spiritual current out of which he moved to write the short stories". "Played out against the quintessential Carver emotional landscapes of loneliness and alcohol and not enough money, these poems seem to contain the seeds of his stories within them, sometimes caught in a single image, line, or idea" (Mary Park). An incurable alcoholic who described his last few years as "pure gravy", Carver considered his belated fame and success during the last decade of his life (he died in 1988 at the age of 50) a blessing (rather than the proverbial curse), a triumph over odds that eventually overwhelmed him: "And did you get what/ You wanted from this life, even so? / I did. / And what did I want? / To call myself beloved, to feel myself/ beloved on this earth" (Raymond Carver). A heartbreakingly beautiful, absolute "must-have" title for Raymond Carver collectors. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Raymond Carver's "Where I'm Calling From" was selected by the panel of New York Times writers, critics, and editors as one of the Top 20 most important works of American fiction of the last 25 years, the only short story collection in the list. One of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RAYMOND CARVER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0375403981.
