Overview

A poignant portrait of the landscapes and people that would greatly influence Raymond Carver’s writing.Carver Country is a new updated edition of a 1990 classic. Adelman’s evocative duotone photographs of the landscape and people of Carver’s life in Washington, Oregon, California, and New York state are paired with selections from Carver’s poems, stories, and letters. This “visual biography” reveals that the great depth and melancholy Carver manifested in his character’s lives was often directly born out of the surrounding world and his inner demons. What results becomes a profound meditation on the intersection of the fictionalized world and the physical world.

Raymond Carver's gritty texts, combined with Adelman's photographs of Carver's people and haunts, re-create the world of this major writer, bringing to life the bleak, blue-collar towns, people, and places that became the inspiration for much of his work. 113 duotone photos.
