“Everything Must Go”–Read the Story First

Even serious readers, when they see a movie coming up that’s based on a work of fiction, face the dilemma: Do I read the book first, or do I just go out and see the movie? In the case of the new Will Ferrell movie “Everything Must Go,” there’s no dilemma, no excuse–it’s based on a very short story by Raymond Carver that takes all of a few minutes to read.

So honor Short Story Month by reading “Why Don’t You Dance?” If this is your first exposure to Carver, and you like it, check out the collection in which it first appeared, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.
