Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? by Raymond Carver
Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? - Raymond Carver


Description: With this, his first collection, Carver breathed new life into the short story. In the pared-down style that has since become his hallmark, Carver showed how humour and tragedy dwell in the hearts of ordinary people, and won a readership that grew with every subsequent brilliant collection of stories, poems and essays that appeared in the last eleven years of his life.

Had this onhold for so long that this visit is a complete reboot. Carver wrote as Hopper painted, maybe the connection is the diner, combined with spartanism, oh and voyeurism of course.

Angelica, the BLUE LADY has it all...
Angelica has it all; the designer gear, an abundance of money, and a high-powered job. However, she does not have Shawn, the man of her dreams. When she finds out that they will be working together, she devises a plan to ensnare him, certain that he would not be able to resist the charms of her alter ego, The Blue Lady. However, Angelica had not taken into account Shawn’s masterful re-creation of himself since their previous relationship fizzled out, and also the new hindrance of Sondra, an unplanned spanner in the works. Will Angelica and Shawn get back together? You will have to buy the short story to find out!"

BLUE LADY: The Angelica Mason Series
SHORT AND SAUCY, February 6, 2015
This review is from: Blue Lady: The Angelica Mason Series (Kindle Edition)
Short, saucy in a clean way, the beginning of a series.Do we always think we know what we want and then discover we might be wrong? Without giving away any of the details this is a piece of fiction one can feel the writer's enjoyment in telling the story - nice clothes, a fancy car, a job woth a great future - would you give it up in search for the love of your life? I enjoyed the story - the worst thing is I have to wait for the next sequel.

BLUE LADY: The Angelica Mason Series

"Angelica Mason is no joke. In ten short years, she made a name for herself. Her designer bookshelf of awards and citations shouted her accomplishments in perfect harmony synchronized to the beat of her up-tempo 'do it my way' lifestyle.


After graduating from the University of Georgia, she took advantage of two of the many graduating gifts she received: a set of Louis Vuitton luggage from her god-mother and an all expense paid trip to Italy from her parents. For five months, she enjoyed the Mediterranean and authentic Italian cuisine while showcasing her five years of studying Italian. She'd never admit -out-loud anyway-that her cerebral experience at the Sistine Chapel was overshadowed by her shopping spree in Milan's Montenapoleone. St. Peter's Square and the Vatican were no match for Dolce & Gabbana!


Refreshed and invigorated by the ancient leaders of Western civilization, she returned from Italy heading to the political powerhouse of the 21st century; Washington, DC. Here she planned to match the political theory behind her Masters degree in political science with the realities of US politics. She was off to a great start when she learned just before her return that she landed a spot in the Presidential Management Fellows Program. She fast tracked through the program when the Director of Immigration learned she scripted the white paper on 'Immigration Reform: Constitutional Issues and Exploration'.


She excelled in her position in the Director's office earning quite the reputation for trouble shooting: the big and the small. Initially she thrived on living life in the fast lane and with the powerbrokers that refused to use signal lights or warning signs or so she thought until she learned to read their unwritten, not to be violated, rules and moves.
Suddenly, and if asked, Angelica could articulate in great detail the moment she made the conscious decision to no longer interpret the unwritten DC maneuvers and machinations: 6 PM, Monday, January 1st."
