    I read a few of Raymond Carver’s short stories in Short Cuts, and gave up on them. Just not my type of story. If I see a copy of Cathedral, I may give that a try.

      Good to hear from you, Tracy! I have quite a few short story collections in my bookcase and have to get some read this year. Usually Carver is my “go-to-guy” for a good story but not every tale is a ‘home-run”. I find the Irishman W. Trevor and John Updike to be at times….better!
      I’ll pop over to your blog to see what books you have on your list this year!
