  • This was such a wonderful examination of a life that ebbed with vitality and creative curiosity Lucia Berlin marches to the beat of her own drum and never tries to blame where the marching takes her on anyone It is so rare to find such honesty and stoic acceptance of both the good and the bad to be able to observe yourself in the context of the here and now objectively The pictures add to the feeling that you are conversing with the author The second part of the book includes letters that This w [...]


  • If you re familiar with Lucia Berlin s short stories collected in A Manual for Cleaning Women this book will add a new perspective to familiar territory Half of the book is an unfinished memoir, taking us from the author s peripatetic childhood to marriage and motherhood in her bohemian mid thirties Family snapshots accompany the text The second half is made up of her wild, chatty letters covering the same period She would live for another forty years so part of her life still remains myst If yo [...]


  • Welcome Home is an unfinished autobiography, which Lucia Berlin was working on but never had a chance to finish Much of this material is familiar to me since I recently read Evening in Paradise, a linked series of short stories, fictionalized accounts of her life which covered much of the same ground What Berlin did best was write about what she knew, and reading this in conjunction with her fantasized version of the same events, gives an original portrait of this fascinating woman who should We [...]


  • Reading this book was like sitting with Lucia, who was my mentor, at her kitchen table in flat near the Boulder foothills The first half of the book impressions of the places she lived is beautifully rendered in Lucia s evocative, minimalist style I could hear her voice in the passages so funny and delicate and devilish Honestly, this book made me miss her all over again Lucia was a force of nature and lived a rich and tumultuous life as these pages testify The second half the letters Reading th [...]

  • I received an advanced readers copy of this book as part of Giveaway Thank you Farrar, Straus and Giroux for sending it my way It was a solid read I especially enjoyed the diary entries written by Lucia However, I do believe that a person who is familiar with Lucia s short stories would appreciate this book.


  • I was sent this book free of charge in return for an honest review This is a quick and interesting read even if you are not familiar with the work of Lucia Berlin She lived an unpredictable life for many years and this is reflected in her journals and letters I was fascinated with how her lifestyle changed from what appeared to be year to year This is also a historical perspective on different geographical locations and the culture of the times Quite a worthwhile read and the numerous photo I wa [...]
