A Manual for Cleaning Women compiles the best work of the
legendary short-story writer Lucia Berlin. With her trademark blend of
humor and melancholy, Berlin crafts miracles from the
everyday-uncovering moments of grace in the cafeterias and Laundromats
of the American 'southwest, in the homes of the Northern California
upper classes, and from the perspective of a cleaning woman alone in a
hotel dining room in Mexico City. The women of Berlin's stories are
lost, but they are also strong, clever, and extraordinarily real.
Lovers of the short story will not want to miss this remarkable
collection from a master of the form.
