Lucia Berlin featured on NPR's Selected Shorts
NPR's great Selected Shorts series includes my mentor Lucia Berlin this week. Rita Wolf reads her peculiar love triangle, “The Love Affair.” (The Lucia intro starts 19 minutes in.)
Lucia is still my hero. Amazing writer, amazing friend. You can read what I learned from her — about writing and about life — in my Vanity Fair piece, "11 Years After Her Death, Lucia Berlin Is Finally a Bestselling Author."
And of course check out Lucia's amazing story collection that the New York Times heralded as "genius," A Manual For Cleaning Women.
