    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.

    Sie gilt als das bestgehütete Geheimnis der amerikanischen Literatur. Lucia Berlin ist die Wiederentdeckung des Jahres und wird verglichen mit Raymond Carver, Richard Yates oder Grace Paley. Ihre Stories zeugen von einem unsteten Leben voller Brüche. Es sind Frauen wie sie, deren Schicksal sie festhält: Alleinerziehende Mütter, Alkoholikerinnen auf Entzug, Haushaltshilfen, Krankenschwestern und Sekretärinnen.
