Carver Bio

Hey, Googler, my Raymond Carver life project is an interpretive biography, not critical, although there will be some critical aspects to certain stories that relate to his life story.

I am applying Norman K. Denzin’s Interpretative Biography as my lense — a sociological approach rather than literary, per se. Denzin’s method is to focus on pinpoints of epiphany in the subject’s life, which Carver had many: the day he met his first wife,  his first story published, his first story in a major magazine, the day he quit drinking, his first collection, his first NYTBR glow, meeting his second wife, etc.

Book is not done. We are most likely looking at a late 2012 pub date, or early 2013.
