    Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His  father was a saw-mill worker and his mother was a waitress and clerk. He married  early and for years writing had to come second to earning a living for his young  family. Despite, small-press publication, it was not until Will You Please Be  Quiet Please? appeared in 1976 that his work began to reach a wider audience.  This was the year in which he gave up alcohol, which had contributed to the  collapse of his marriage. In 1977 he met the writer Tess Gallagher, with whom he  shared the last eleven years of his life. During this prolific period he wrote  three collections of stories, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love,  Cathedral and Elephant. Fires, a collection of essays, poems and stories,  appeared in 1985, followed by three further collections of poetry. In 1988 he  completed the poetry collection A New Path to the Waterfall.
