2 comments on “Thoughts on Raymond Carver and Editors

  1. After reading the New York Times article, I think for Tess Gallagher this is really about the money. Why else would she be rewriting Ray Carver history? Its sad.

  2. I’ve been reading about this matter for the past few years now. I think Carver’s last editor, Gary Fisketjon, has it right. In “Where I’m Calling From,” a collection of new and old stories,Carver restored some of his stories to their original beginnings and left others alone. Yes, that should be the end of it. What Tess Gallagher is doing is muddying the water and I don’t see any point in that except to make money.
