Raymond Carver. Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (1984). First edition.
Carver, Raymond (1938-1988). Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? New York: McGraw-Hill, 1974. First edition. A fine in a price-clipped dustwrapper.
The first collection by one of the most celebrated and influential short story writers of the twentieth century, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? spawned a new movement in literary fiction. The book was nominated for a National Book Award but sold fewer than 5,000 copies. Uncommon in superior condition.
