What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is Carver's most famous collection of short stories and remians one of the most influential pieces of modern literature to date. But the original, unedited manuscript, Beginners - published here for the first time, was almost fifty per cent longer than the published collection. This restored version of Carver's stories reveals what was previously unsaid, filling in the narrative silences that have both inspired and mystified readers for so long.

Beginners is a fascinating insight into the aesthetic of a literary great and, in the questions it raises, may just spark off one of the great cultural debates of our times.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Beginners is unlikely to replace What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. Instead, it will be in dialogue with it, because the story has no end: there will always be afterthoughts -- Sarah Churchwell * Guardian *
Hopefully, thanks to Gallagher, every small, vital nuance, every moving observation, each choice of word as Carver wrote it, is there to be seen; that is why Carver cared enough to begin setting it right, and others have now finished the task -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times *
An extraordinary book, more generous and rambling in tone than its distilled counterpart -- Tim Adams * Observer *
The most interesting book of the year * Sunday Telegraph *
an extraordinary book, and probably the most influential story collection of the past 30 years -- Tim Adams * Observer *
