Product description

Review

A genius of character and a literary magician.

A truly remarkable writer.--Jonathan Franzen

A truly remarkable writer. --Jonathan Franzen

A genius of character and a literary magician. "

I felt physically jolted by genius. --Katherine Boo"

A truly remarkable writer. --Jonathan Franzen"

Lispector is the premier Latin American woman prose writer of this century.

An artist of vivid imagination. If her work is thoughtful and poetic, distinguished by touching insight and human sympathy, it is also full of irony and wild humor.

If she does dare I say it? touch you, she touches you like nothing else you ve ever read.--Benjamin Mosher"

In less than one hundred pages, Clarice Lispector tells a brilliantly multi-faceted and searing story.--Jesse Larsen

About the Author

Clarice Lispector (1920-1977), the greatest Brazilian writer of the twentieth century, has been called "astounding" (Rachel Kushner), "a penetrating genius" (Donna Seaman, Booklist), and "a truly remarkable writer" (Jonathan Franzen). "Her images dazzle even when her meaning is most obscure," noted the Times Literary Supplement, "and when she is writing of what she despises, she is lucidity itself."
