the Ten Best Books of 2015; and NPR, Time, Entertainment Weekly, The
Guardian, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and other outlets gave
the book rave reviews. The book’s author, Lucia Berlin, earned comparisons

her. From Texas to Chile, Mexico to New York City, Berlin finds beauty in
the darkest places and darkness in the seemingly pristine. Evening in
Paradise is an essential piece of Berlin’s oeuvre, a jewel-box follow-up
for new and old fans.
