The New York Times bestseller 'This selection of 43 stories should by all rights see Lucia Berlin as lauded as Jean Rhys or Raymond Carver' Independent The stories in A Manual for Cleaning Women make for one of the most remarkable unsung collections in twentieth-century American fiction. With extraordinary honesty and magnetism, Lucia Berlin invites us into her rich, itinerant life: the drink and the mess and the pain and the beauty and the moments of surprise and of grace. Her voice is uniquely witty, anarchic and compassionate. Celebrated for many years by those in the know, she is about to become - a decade after her death - the writer everyone is talking about. The collection will be introduced by Lydia Davis. 'With Lucia Berlin we are very far away from the parlours of Boston and New York and quite far away, too, from the fiction of manners, unless we are speaking of very bad manners . . . The writer Lucia Berlin most puts me in mind of is the late Richard Yates.' LRB, 1999

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. «Recién aparecido en Estados Unidos ya ha arrasado en los suplementos literarios y tiene todos los puntos para convertirse en un libro de culto.» Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, La Vanguardia «Lucia Berlin pasó su vida en la oscuridad. Ahora se la reverencia como a un genio literario.» Brigit Katz, The New York Times Con su inigualable toque de humor y melancolía, Berlin se hace eco de su vida, asombrosa y convulsa, para crear verdaderos milagros literarios con episodios del día a día. Las mujeres de sus relatos están desorientadas, pero al mismo tiempo son fuertes, inteligentes y, sobre todo extraordinariamente reales. Ríen, lloran, aman, beben: sobreviven. * Uno de los mejores libros del año según The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR y The Boston Globe. * En la lista de los más vendidos en Estados Unidos desde su publicación. * Traducida a más de 14 idiomas. Reseñas: «Hacía tiempo que no leía nada tan impactante: su aterradora belleza deja sin aliento.» Rosa Montero «La última sensación literaria de Estados Unidos es una autora con una vida de película. Crítica y público se rinden a su obra. Al fin llegó la hora de Lucia Berlin.» Andrea Aguilar, El País «Maldita, brillante, rescatada. Uno de los fenómenos literarios del momento. Una Raymond Carver.» Laura Fernández, El Mundo «Leer a Lucia Berlin ha sido una de las grandes satisfacciones lectoras de los últimos meses. Emocionante, de saltarse las lágrimas, entre la ironía y la inmensa ternura.» Laura Revuelta, Abc.es «Milagros de la posteridad, del olfato editorial o de la justicia poética, la autora está más viva que nunca. Ahora resucita y se la compara con Raymond Carver. (¿Estará mal decir que me parece mejor que él?).» Rodrigo Fresán, Vanity Fair «Creo que nunca he leído a una mujer más inteligente, sensible, tierna y valiente que Lucia Berlin.» José María Guelbenzu, Babelia «¿Cómo explicas los cuentos de Berlin ¿Cómo resumes la carnalidad, el desequilibrio, la sensación de peligro, un estilo que te corta las entrañas como un bisturí pero que al mismo tiempo te hace sonreír y sentir una envidia inconfesable de unas vidas vividas siempre al límite de la catástrofe y la locura? Me arriesgaré a ponerme pesado: leed Manual para mujeres de la limpieza. » Sergi Pàmies, La Vanguardia («Then we take Berlin») «Unos relatos precisos y vivos en los que nada sobra. Un derroche de maestría literaria.» Elena Méndez, La Voz de Galicia «No es un sueño. Lucia Berlin existió. Pero he tardado décadas en encontrarla. Un tesoro literario de primera magnitud. Berlin es verdad de principio a fin, auténtica y divertida.» Marta Reyero, Cuatro.com «El conjunto es un perfecto taller de creación literaria, una clase magistral que Lucia Berlin nos regala desde el más allá. Uno de esos libros que no quieres que se acaben, que podrías leer una y otra vez, que te deja la huella indeleble de tantas de sus frases.» Fernando Ontañón, La Opinión «Una verdadera maravilla.» Rosa Regás, El Diario Vasco «Apabullante. Fenomenal. Divertidamente desesperado.» Enric González, Jotdown « El libro del año reúne los cuentos de una de las muchas escritoras que una historia literaria escrita principalmente por hombres prefirió no recordar, para infortunio de los lectores; pero su reivindicación no se agota en el gesto político: los cuentos son excelentes.» Patricio Pron «Los cuentos de Berlin funcionan como una novela autobiográfica: la infancia en Nuevo México o Texas, los hijos, la vida bohemia en Nueva York, los matrimonios fracasados, la familia, los trabajos o el amor pasados los cincuenta son algunos de los temas del libro. Me cautivó su frescura y es uno de esos libros que da ganas de escribir.» Aloma Rodríguez, Letras Libres «Publicado póstumamente, este volumen reúne 77 relatos llenos de dolor, ternura y humor, que descubren la importancia de lo insignificante en lo cotidiano, y el horror de existir siendo mujer, pobre y alcohólica.» El Cultural

An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world s most ruthless and secretive dictatorships and the story of one woman s terrifying struggle to avoid capture/repatriation and guide her family to freedom. As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and, as the famine of the 1990s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realise that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be, as she had been told the best on the planet ? Aged seventeen, she decided to escape North Korea. She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family. She could not return, since rumours of her escape were spreading, and she and her family could incur the punishments of the government authorities involving imprisonment, torture, and possible public execution. Hyeonseo instead remained in China and rapidly learned Chinese in an effort to adapt and survive. Twelve years and two lifetimes later, she would return to the North Korean border in a daring mission to spirit her mother and brother to South Korea, on one of the most arduous, costly and dangerous journeys imaginable. This is the unique story not only of Hyeonseo s escape from the darkness into the light, but also of her coming of age, education and the resolve she found to rebuild her life not once, but twice first in China, then in South Korea. Strong, brave and eloquent, this memoir is a triumph of her remarkable spirit."
