A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories by Lucia Berlin is a collection of 43 linked stories, many (most?) of them autobiographical. It will be an interesting challenge to discuss the collection as a whole!
This book was on many Best of 2015 lists, and was one of The New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2015. It's a Maureen Corrigan favorite: "If you want consolation or uplift from your short stories, look elsewhere. Berlin had been around the block a few too many times to sugarcoat things. But her hard-earned, one-of-a-kind voice and vision make these stories well worth the pain."
