In this superb collection of short stories, Elizabeth Berg takes us into remarkable 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, to 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 the sensitivity and brilliant insights about the human condition ( Detroit Free Press ) that have become a 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 insight are everywhere present in Ordinary Life ."
