'This selection of 43 stories should by all rights see Lucia Berlin as lauded as Jean Rhys or Raymond Carver' - Independent

The stories in A Manual for Cleaning Women make for one of the most remarkable unsung collections in twentieth-century American fiction.

With extraordinary honesty and magnetism, Lucia Berlin invites us into her rich, itinerant life: the drink and the mess and the pain and the beauty and the moments of surprise and of grace. Her voice is uniquely witty, anarchic and compassionate. Celebrated for many years by those in the know, she is about to become - a decade after her death - the writer everyone is talking about. The collection will be introduced by Lydia Davis.

'With Lucia Berlin we are very far away from the parlours of Boston and New York and quite far away, too, from the fiction of manners, unless we are speaking of very bad manners . . . The writer Lucia Berlin most puts me in mind of is the late Richard Yates.' - LRB, 1999

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.
