    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.

    Before Lucia Berlin died, she was working on a book of previously unpublished autobiographical sketches called Welcome Home. The work consisted of more than 20 chapters that started in 1936 in Alaska and ended (prematurely) in 1966 in Southern Mexico. In our publication of Welcome Home, her son, Jeff Berlin, is filling in the gaps with photos and letters from her eventful, romantic, and tragic life.

    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.

    Ranging from Texas, to Chile, to New Mexico and New York, in this new collection Berlin writes about the good, the bad and everything in between: struggling young mothers, husbands who pack their bags and leave in the middle of the night, wives looking back at their first marriage from the distance of their second.... Evening in Paradise is a careful selection from Lucia Berlin's remaining stories - a jewel box follow-up for her hungry fans.
