Synopsis

I have always had faith that the best writers will rise to the top, like cream, sooner or later, and will become exactly as well-known as they should betheir work talked about, quoted, taught, performed, filmed, set to music, anthologized. Perhaps, with the present collection, Lucia Berlin will begin to gain the attention she deserves.Lydia Davis, from the foreword A Manual for Cleaning Women compiles the best work of the legendary short-story writer Lucia Berlin. With the grit of Raymond Carver, the humor of Grace Paley, and a blend of wit and melancholy all her own, Berlin crafts miracles from the everyday, uncovering moments of grace in the laundromats and halfway houses of the American Southwest, in the homes of the Bay Area upper class, among switchboard operators and struggling mothers, hitchhikers, and bad Christians. Readers will revel in this remarkable collection from a master of the form and wonder how theyd ever overlooked her in the first place.
