Raymond Carver, considered a master of the modern short story, lived a turbulent and dramatic life, but there has never been a biography of him until now. California writer Carol Sklenicka is author of the detailed "Raymond Carver: A Writer's Life" which traces Carver's struggles with alcoholism, marriage, poverty and his long-time editor Gordon Lish. Sklenicka will sign copies of her book at The Book Works in Del Mar.
