Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"...Dickensian tension, the sense of holding back a wave of emotionalism, of heartbreak or rage or faith, galvanizes much of 'Cathedral'--with character after character poised on the edge of some abyss, the verge of despair....'Cathedral' is an important book in a unique career: these are riskier, deeper stories than Carver has produced before, the first ones likely to outlast their place and time."

Josh Rubins, New York Review of Books, 11/24/1983

Review:

"Familiar enough on the surface, these stories leave one with tremors that resemble the start of a breakdown. The familiar controls guiding daily life fall apart; panic takes over....A few of Mr. Carver's stories...can already be counted among the masterpieces of American fiction; a number of others are very strong. But something of the emotional meagerness that he portrays seeps into the narrative....I think Mr. Carver is showing us at least part of the truth about a segment of American experience few of our writers trouble to notice....[A]t his best he is probing...the waste and destructiveness that prevail beneath the affluence of American life."

Irving Howe, New York Times Book Review, 09/11/1983
