Dual Intersection Of Interests

One August evening in 1973, Raymond Carver heard a knock on the door of his faculty apartment at the famed Iowa Writer's Workshop in Iowa City. Standing in the threshold was an older man, holding an empty glass.
"Pardon me," the man said, "I'm John Cheever. Could I borrow some scotch?" Carver was right to immediately sense a "dual intersection of interests." 
— with Raymond Carver, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
