Raymond Carver was an American poet and short story writer who is credited with having contributed to the revitalization of the American short story in literature during the 1980s. Much has been written about his life. In writing this book his brother, James Carver, hopes that his pictorial memoir will tell the true story of family life as Ray and he lived it, and in the process dispel the inaccuracies and untruths written about his brother and family over the years. Carver shares fond memories as well as sad ones, from many years ago, and includes a historical perspective of the times in which the brothers lived.
James Carver is enjoying his retirement in the state of Oregon loving the Oregon coast. He reads, writes poetry, and paints, mainly abstracts. He also enjoys going to many concerts, listening to classical music, jazz, blues and the big bands from the 1940's.
