A New Path to the Waterfall by Raymond Carver

Raymond Carver, author of Where Im Calling From, is widely considered one of the great short story writers of our time. A New Path to the Waterfall was Carvers last book, and shows a writer telling the truth as best as he knows how in the time left to him. The sixty-odd poems in this collection are linked by Carver with selections from other writers, most notably Chekhov, whose work was an inspiration and a guide, and by the cumulative force of the life and death questions he poses in them. As Rilkes Letters to a Young Poet guided countless readers discovering their true love and work, Carvers book will guide those in the process of celebrating a limited life and mourning the inescapable end of it. A New Path to the Waterfall is an essential book for those who admire Carvers work, and testament to the transcendent strength of the human spirit. In her introductory essay, Tess Gallagher, Carvers companion and fellow writer, lays out the circumstances of their last years together with matter-of-fact grace.
