Publisher's Summary

A collection of previously uncompiled stories from the short-story master and literary sensation Lucia Berlin.

In 2015, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux published A Manual for Cleaning Women, a posthumous story collection by a relatively unknown writer, to wild, widespread acclaim. It was a New York Times best seller; the paper's Book Review named it one of the 10 best books of 2015; and NPR, Time, Entertainment Weekly, The Guardian, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and other outlets gave the book rave reviews.

Evening in Paradise is a careful selection from the remaining Berlin stories - a jewel box follow-up for Lucia Berlin's hungry fans.

A millions.com pick of most anticipated books.

Tapestry of color and grit

Excellent. Beautiful writing
I felt the story lines
As if I was there. The scenery. The fabric of the characters lives.

Thank you very much
