Where I'm Calling From
...is a story I read for a short fiction course I took halfway through my BA. It was my introduction to Raymond Carver's work. Tonight, after reading a story that focusses on Carver as poet (via Bookninja), I pulled out The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, which served as the text for that course, to see if the short bio actually mentions his poetry, and sure enough it does. Carver, a poet! Clearly my memory had pitched that piece of information. Anyhow, on that page I caught sight of Tiny, one of the characters, and read the passage, stopping at the mention of duck hunting. That's when I remembered Carver's Saskatchewan connection.
