A Manual For Cleaning Women : Selected Stories

Author(s): Lucia Berlin, Stephen Emerson
"Berlin finds 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. They are hitchhikers, hard workers, bad Christians. They navigate a world of jockeys, doctors, and switchboard operators. They laugh, they mourn, they drink."-- Provided by publisher.
