The writer shot to fame with his short stories, which were set in modern day America, there were no high profile personalities in his works; the people and their lifestyles were that of an average American. (Claire Dederer, 2001) The issues Carver talked about were so downright simple and the titles so amazingly colloquial that the reader is often left with a feeling of awe.
