A short review of: A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin

manualclean“Berlin is an awesome short story writer.  A sense of truth resounds through her work.  Her accounts of characters struggling with alcoholism are particularly striking.  She herself is known to have had a similar struggle.  Her work stands as witness and commentary on the social conditions of the times in which she lived, in all their stark realities” (by Morgan Yasbincek).
