"You should read Fires now. These stories and poems...show the enormous talent of Raymond Carver beginning to take hold."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"Seminal in Carver studies...A disparate collection of work bound by a unity of vision and obsession."
--Los Angeles Herald Examiner
"Carver's most revealing book...This collection confirms the worth of Raymond Carver's work...Like bright birds in distant trees, Carver's stories appear in flashes, glimpses; Fires reveals the arc of his purposeful flight."
--The Boston Globe
More than sixty stories, poems, and essays are included in this wide-ranging collection by the extravagantly versatile Raymond Carver.
