Evocative . . . poignant . . . acute and funny' Observer

'The Revival of the Great Lucia Berlin Continues Apace' New York Times

Best known for her short fiction, it was upon publication of A Manual for Cleaning Women in 2015 that Lucia Berlin’s status as a great American writer was widely celebrated. To populate her stories – the places, relationships, the sentiments – Berlin often drew on her own rich, itinerant life.

Before Berlin died, she was working on a book of previously unpublished autobiographical sketches called Welcome Home. The work consisted of more than twenty 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.

From Alaska to Argentina, Kentucky to Mexico, New York City to Chile, Berlin’s world was wide. And the writing here is, as we’ve come to expect, dazzling. She describes the places she lived and the people she knew with all the style and wit and heart and humour that readers fell in love with in her stories.

O autoru

Lucia Berlin, rođena 1936. u Juneauu na Aljasci, američka je spisateljica. U dvadeset četvrtoj godini počela je objavljivati priče u časopisu The Nobel Savage koji je uređivao Saul Bellow. Priča Moj džokej donijela joj je Nagradu Jack London za najbolju kratku priču 1985, a sa zbirkom Žudnja za domom osvojila je Američku književnu nagradu 1991. godine. Radila je kao srednjoškolska nastavnica, spremačica, telefonistica, medicinska sestra, istovremeno se brinući o svoja četiri sina i boreći se s alkoholizmom. U periodu od 1996. do 2000. predavala je kreativno pisanje na Univerzitetu u Coloradu. Umrla je 2004, a jedanaest godina nakon njene smrti objavljena je knjiga Priručnik za spremačice, prevedena već na trideset jezika.
