More Words of Wisdom from Carver (Or Was It Lish?)
Since our discussion of Raymond Carver and minimalism a few days ago, I've been re-reading a few Carver stories here and there when I've had the time. Should we ever decide to replace the Barack Obama quote at the top of this page, I propose that we adopt this one, from Carver's story "Gazebo," which I read this morning:
"Booze takes a lot of time and effort if you're going to do a good job with it."
If you think about it, you know it's true.
