willy vlautin's stories are carvweresque too if i remember the few i read in journals. carver country is a good place to live in, inside or outside the body.

i know the following things which will bore all here:

they (hannah and carver--along with paley who is another story) were the best short story writers of their times

they (the men (paley was a vigorous re-writer and editor's dream( were IMMENSELY helped by the great editor and great writer gordon lish, controversially of course in carver's case [lish often sitting high at his Esquire-throne simply AXED off whole sections of Ray's writings before publishing them] Tess Gallagher, poet and ray's widow, denied all l,ot of this "influence" but Lish certainly has powerful evidence that he he at least brought carver to his pinter-esque minimalism faster than if by himself.

i say all this because i thought yamhill would care. and dead dogs ain't that funny. and I, carver (a person i met with several times), paley(ditto), and many others all thought the same thing: barry hannah was the fucking meteor across our night's sky.

A friend of mine worked the overnight at a convenience store for a while. He finally had enough when some dude came in there, drank 4 big bottles of Scope, and kept blabbing at him for hours.
