Tras años de injusto olvido, Alfaguara se suma al fenómeno editorial del descubrimiento de Lucia Berlin, el secreto mejor guardado de la literatura estadounidense, una auténtica revolución literaria. XVII Premi Llibreter 2016. Libro del Año según Babelia. Una revelación literaria: el secreto mejor guardado de la literatura estadounidense.

Manual para mujeres de la limpieza reúne los mejores textos de la legendaria escritora de relatos Lucia Berlin, uno de los secretos mejor guardados de la literatura estadounidense. Con su inigualable toque de humor y melancolía, Berlin crea verdaderos milagros con episodios del día a día.

Las mujeres de sus cuentos están desorientadas pero, al mismo tiempo, son fuertes, inteligentes y, sobre todo, extraordinariamente reales. Son autoestopistas, duras trabajadoras, malas cristianas. Ríen, lloran, beben. Sobreviven en un mundo de jockeys, doctores y telefonistas con un ingenio propio de Lorrie Moore y la agudeza de Raymond Carver.


One of The New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2015 "I have always had faith that the best writers will rise to the top, like cream, sooner or later, and will become exactly as well-known as they should be-their work talked about, quoted, taught, performed, filmed, set to music, anthologized. Perhaps, with the present collection, Lucia Berlin will begin to gain the attention she deserves." -Lydia Davis.

A manual for cleaning women compiles the best work of the legendary shortstory 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.
