Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Homesick (1990) and So Long (1993), her immensely popular short story collections, established Lucia Berlin as the Sister of Mercy of contemporary fiction. In Where I Live Now, Berlin once again contemplates the human condition with a compassionate understanding. Berlin's vision is sometimes remorseful, sometimes resigned, always courageous and unmisgiving.<P>The elusive nature of happiness is a compelling theme here: the survivors in these stories — many of them society's marginal or excluded people, fighting alcohol or drug addiction, bearing emotional scars — recognize it all too well. They mourn the lost dreams of youth, the roads not taken. They suffer the damage life inflicts: the ache of loneliness, the pain of separation, the fear of death.
