Carver's "what we talk about when we talk about love" is an interesting work. His editor did the editing work with a chainsaw. The original manuscripts are available as a work called "beginnings".

Carver claims these works as being part of his second life, because he got sober after this publication (his first). I love that.

Also, just to add, David Goodis is the most depressing and despairing author I've ever read. Top shelf.

Used to be a huge Chandler fan (and still am) but he was educated in England and all of his stories are knights in shining armor/hero saves girl-style
