“I just wrote to go home. It was a place to be where I felt I was safe. And so, I write to fix a reality.” Lucia Berlin articulates the impetus for many creative spirits, She lived in many places and faced the challenges of an unreliable world but raised her children and later in life found peace in her teaching and her stories. She fixes my reality too and tempts me out of the winter blues into spring. I recommend A Manual for Cleaning Women with or without the spring cleaning.
