Full Synopsis
This is Raymond Carver's third collection of stories, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, including the canonical titular story about blindness and learning to enter the very different world of another. The twelve stories in Cathedral mark a turning point in Carver's work and "overflow with the danger, excitement, mystery and possibility of life. . . . Carver is a writer of astonishing compassion and honesty . . . his eye set only on describing and revealing the world as he sees it. His eye is so clear, it almost breaks your heart" (Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World).

"Cathedral contains a number of similar stories, very skillful within their narrow limits, written with a dry intensity, and moving, at their climaxes, from the commonplace to the unnerving." ---New York Times

"A dozen stories that overflow with the danger, excitement, mystery and possibility of life . . . Carver is a writer of astonishing compassion and honesty." ---The Washington Post

"Cathedral contains astonishing achievements, which bespeaks a writer expanding his range of intentions." ---The Boston Globe
