If you have hung around here any amount of time you have more than likely seen the Elizabeth Berg books popping into my “To Be Read” pile. I read my first Elizabeth Berg book in January of this year, We Are All Welcome Here. The book touched and impressed me and I made a commitment that I have never done before – to read all of this authors works in 2011.
Here we are in May – and here is a list of Elizabeth Berg’s books and the ones I have read have reviews attached:
Elizabeth Berg is a Minnesota author. She was born in 1948, and that would make her the same age as my mom. 🙂 She submitted her first poem to American Girl Magazine when she was 9 and when it was rejected, it took her 25 years before she ever submitted anything again.
Berg hasn’t managed to get her way when it comes to titling her books, usually getting overruled by her agent and editor. She wanted to call Durable Goods The King of Wands, after a tarot card; Range of Motion would have been Telling Songs; and Open House would have been The Hotel Meatloaf. Perhaps Berg should be thankful for her handlers?
