Jay McInerney summed up Raymond Carver’s legacy with these words: “One aspect of what Carver seemed to say to us – even to someone who had never been inside a lumber mill or a trailer park – was that literature could be fashioned out of strict observation of real life, wherever and however it was lived, even if it was lived with a bottle of Heinz ketchup on the table and the television set droning. This was news at a time when academic metafiction was the regnant mode. His example reinvigorated realism as well as the short-story form.”
