Raymond Carver, Subterranean Homesick Blues and World Book Night April 27, 2013 – Posted in: book arts

Each year noted UK book artist Sara Bodman and fellow book artists collaborate “on a tribute event for World Book Night.”

This year the starting point for the tribute was A Small, Good Thing a story from Raymond Carver’s seminal 1983 collection of short stories Cathedral. The book was also the basis for Robert Altman’s 1993 film Short Cuts.

An open call was placed inviting people to partake in a small good thing, write it down and send it in.

From there it went like this:

“On World Book Night we made a low-fi, video in a very homemade style of the original film clip for Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues, using those small, good things. The music was written and played by Simon Butler and Simon Smith.”
