Ouch. What's up with the widow hating? Too bad Ted Hughes is gone, or Tess and Ted could make up the most-reviled literary widow couple of the century. I'm a huge Raymond Carver fan. (I'm also a fan of Tess Gallagher.) Literary critics have made this sort of thing their business for years, and I think it can be important context to studying an author's career. Look, they can do it with War and Peace, they can do it with Richard Wright, with William Faulkner--I can't count the number "restored" editions of various important books there have been over the years--so many of which are now considered the definitive edition. So I'd say, yeah, it's Carver's turn.

what's wrong w/ gallagher's idea? personally i'd love to see the original versions of raymond carver stories and judge for myself if they're better than the edits.

The only "truth" is that Dan Brown sucks.
