I bought this because it had a good review in one of the Sunday papers, and I thought the author had in interesting name.

When I started to read it, I couldn't believe it's brilliance. It's an internal psychological monologue, where a young woman reflects on the things around her in Brazil. She's diocciated and remote from everything, and it's as if she experiences the world through a a foot thick filter of her own consciousness. She's difficult and unpredictable to others, but interprets the world through her own senses and acts innocently on her own instincts.

There's no plot to speak of, but the images and writing jump off every page.

This a kind of Letranger by Camus, but from a female point of view, and infinitely better written. Restored my faith in literature, even if it is 70 years old. Hurricane Clarice we salute you

A woman remembers fragments of her life, with raw detail and emotion, elliptical and poetic, powerful and hypnotic, Lispector writes intensely, beautifully, with insight and conviction, this is art but it's a page-turner as well. Stunning.
