Raymond Carver on You Tube

More hunting on You Tube, and I came up with this video about Raymond Carver's life. "He wanted to be bold, but his eyes gave him away." Oh, but that line made me shiver....



I have a dreadful feeling I'm falling in love with these dead writers. I keep searching them out, watching and watching them speak and then going to read their words. Memo to myself: must spend more time with the living.

I watched that a couple of weeks ago - as well as a four or five parter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GdmXV-WPCA

Great, isn't it? And isn't he?

The first writer I fell in love with was Rupert Brooke. Who could resist? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Brooke

Raymond Carver is my number one hero. I spent some time with Adrian Mitchell years ago, and he was Raymond Carver's neighbour and knew him. What a great man.
