"Intimacy," "Blackbird Pie," and "Errand," from Raymond Carver's last collection of short fiction entitled 'Elephant,' show his interest in experimental directions. Critics generally view most of Carver's work as realistic, yet these stories show an almost playful attitude toward the concept of fiction as reality. Carver was becoming a writer who invented narratives of imagination and sympathy not available to the historian.
