Several starred reviews for each of these titles guarantees a spot on your library shelves!

THE NIGHT STAGES by Jane Urquhart
A female pilot recalls her affair with a man obsessed with the disappearance of his brother in this elegiac novel of intersecting memories and the sorrows of fractured families. “Highly satisfying on many levels, this novel will have book clubs basking in its big symbols and abuzz over Tamara’s final decision.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Urquhart’s poetic, almost ethereal writing invites readers to revisit certain passages and marvel. This book about unquenchable longing is a lovely addition to her distinguished, award-filled oeuvre.” Library Journal, starred review

A MANUAL FOR CLEANING WOMEN by Lucia Berlin
“A posthumous collection of stories, almost uniformly narrated by hard-living women, that makes a case for the author as a major talent. A testament to a writer whose explorations of society’s rougher corners deserve wider attention.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

[Lucia Berlin] may just be the best writer you’ve never heard of… Berlin’s offbeat humor, get-on-with-it realism, and ability to layer details that echo across stories and decades give her book a tremendous staying power.” Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review

“Begin reading a Berlin short story and you know immediately that you are in the presence of a unique and searing literary force. An essential collection of jazzy, jolting, incisive, wryly funny, and keenly compassionate, virtuoso tales.”
