Here is a list of every book I’ve written. I’ve provided a plot summary, something about what inspired each book, and a sample quote. Think of this as a cyber bookstore (with a certain prejudice toward authors) and wander around, browsing. You’ll get a good idea of what each book is like.

I’m often asked if I have a favorite. The truth is that my books are like children to me, and I really do love them all. However, I have a special affection for The Story of Arthur Truluv. All of my titles are readily available with the exception of Family Traditions, the only title of mine that is out of print. It can sometimes be found on line, however.

 I’m immensely gratified that for every single book I’ve written, there’s been someone who has said about it, “This one is my favorite.”

If you want a book signed, you can email me at I’ll let you know how much it would be for the book plus postage. Or you can buy my books from The Book Table in Oak Park and they will mail you a signed copy. 

“Maybe Freud didn’t know the answer to what women want, but Elizabeth Berg certainly does.”

–The Seattle Times

“Heartwrenching…hilarious….Berg sits somewhere between Anne Tyler and Alice Hoffman.”

–Chicago Sun-Times

“Berg’s writing is to literature what Chopin’s etudes are to music–measured, delicate, and impossible to walk away from until their completion.”

–Entertainment Weekly
