Summary
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • "An extraordinary short story collection that deserves our closest attention."—Detroit Free Press"Elizabeth Berg's gift as a storyteller lies most powerfully in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday."—The Boston GlobeIn this superb collection of short stories, Elizabeth Berg takes us into pivotal moments in the lives of women, when memories and events come together to create a sense of coherence, understanding, and change. In "Ordinary Life," Mavis McPherson locks herself in the bathroom for a week, shutting out her husband and the realities of their life together—and no, she isn't contemplating a divorce. She just needs some time to think, take stock of her life, and to arrive, finally, at a surprising conclusion.In "White Dwarf" and "Martin's Letter to Nan," the secrets of a marriage are revealed with sensitivity and "brilliant insights about the human condition" (Detroit Free Press) that have become trademark of Berg's writing. The Charlotte Observer has said, "Berg captures the way women think as well as any writer." Those qualities of wisdom and perception are everywhere present in Ordinary Life
