A Manual for Cleaning Women

Selected Stories

A "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER

"In the field of short fiction, Lucia Berlin is one of America's best kept secrets. That's it. Flat out. No mitigating conditions."--Paul Metcalf

"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 they'd ever overlooked her in the first place.

* For readers of Lydia Davis and Alice Munro

Portrait

LUCIA BERLIN (1936-2004) worked brilliantly but sporadically throughout  the  1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. An alcoholic most her life, she got sober and began writing steadily by the 1990s, she took a visiting writer's post at the University of Colorado Boulder in 1994 and was soon  promoted  to associate professor. In 2001, in failing health, she moved  to  Southern California to be near her sons. She died in 2004 in Marina  del  Rey.
