Named a Best Book of the Year by The New York Times Book Review · NPR · Entertainment Weekly · Elle · Harper’s Bazaar · BuzzFeed · Bustle · The Millions · The Boston Globe · The Washington Post · Chicago Tribune · San Francisco Chronicle · The Guardian (London) · Newsday · The Paris Review Daily · The Kansas City Star · The Independent (London) · Publishers Weekly · Kirkus Reviews

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.

Readers will revel in this remarkable collection from a master of the form and wonder how they’d ever overlooked her in the first place.
