Louise Glück Is a Marvelous Yelper

By Harriet Staff

Former Poet Laureates! They’re just like us! Turns out our friend Louise Glück is quite the Yelper. Having recently utilized the services of Heather’s Home Cleaning in Berkeley, Glück waxed fondly:

I am writing this review on behalf of Louise Gluck, a visiting professor at the University I work for:

When I first walked into the house I’d rented in Berkeley (chosen for its ideal location) I thought, frankly, only gutting it completely could help it. It was dismal and faintly sordid, like an ancient bus stop in a rural town. The furnishings were early dentist’s office. These were replaced, but the greatest change was worked by Heather’s Home Cleaning. Never have I seen clean like this: walls and tiles changed color, surfaces I’d been reluctant to actually touch glittered. I cannot recommend this service highly enough, and I wish I could kidnap one of its brilliant workers – my REAL house needs help too.

Was this review useful? You bet!
