Author Spotlight: Lucia Berlin (1936-2004)

Short-story master and literary sensation!

WELCOME HOME: A Memoir with Selected Photographs and Letters 

Before Lucia Berlin died, she was working on a book of previously unpublished autobiographical sketches called WELCOME HOME. The work consisted of more than twenty chapters that started in 1936 in Alaska and ended (prematurely) in 1966 in southern Mexico. From Alaska to Acapulco, Montana to Mexico, New York City to Chile, Berlin’s world was wide. She describes the places she lived and the people she knew with all the style and wit and heart and humor that readers fell in love with in her stories.

“Berlin is so stealthily funny… [She] probably deserved a Pulitzer Prize… She managed to write, beautifully, about the hard and the awkward things…”New York Times

EVENING IN PARADISE: More Stories

EVENING IN PARADISE is a careful selection from Berlin’s remaining stories—twenty-two gems that showcase the gritty glamour that made readers fall in love with her. From Texas to Chile, Mexico to New York City, Berlin finds beauty in the darkest places and darkness in the seemingly pristine.

“No dead author is more alive on the page than Berlin: funny, dark, and so in love with the world.”Kirkus, starred review

“Berlin’s writing achieves a dreamy, delightful effect as it provides a look back through time. This collection should further bolster Berlin’s reputation as one of the strongest short story writers of the 20th century.”Publishers Weekly, starred review
