Product description


'Writing that falls into that subset of literature that only contains itself, which demands that you pay attention and realise you are in uncharted territory, where you must make up your own responses as you go along. With My Dog Eyes is very much that kind of book...Look on it as not so much a novel as an extended prose poem, written from the edge.' ---- Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian

About the Author

Hilda Hilst was born in 1930 in Jaú, Brazil. She was a prolific author whose works span many different genres, including poetry, drama, fiction, and newspaper columns. Born the heiress to a coffee fortune, she abandoned São Paulo and a law career in the 1950s to devote herself to literature, moved to the countryside, and built herself a house, Casa do Sol, where she lived until the end of her life with a rotating cast of friends, lovers, aspiring artists, bohemian poets, and dozens of dogs. She received numerous major literary prizes over the course of her career, including Brazil's highest honor, the Prèmio Jabuti. She died in 2004, at the age of seventy-three.

Adam Morris
is a PhD candidate in Latin American literature at Stanford University. An excerpt from his translation of With My Dog-Eyes won the 2012 Susan Sontag Foundation Prize for Literary Translation.
