These poems are the dizzy hangover of a night spent with someone you know you shouldn’t have. Abrasive in form, Crush begs you to start reading but won’t let you stop or even slow down, no matter what. This is where you learn about poetry’s velocity. You won’t get off this ride unscathed, trust me.

Raymond Carver: Collected Stories (LOA #195): Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? / What We Talk About When We Talk About Love / Cathedral / stories from Where I'm Calling From / Beginners / other stories

By Raymond Carver

This all encompassing collection of Carver’s short stories never stays on my shelf; I need it close by. This is poverty, alcoholism and love stripped to their most bare, the portraits so intimate you feel like a voyeur, but why look away? I have the last line of “Vitamins'' tattooed on my arm if that means anything.
