Product description

Review

Brilliant and unclassifiable… Glamorous, cultured, moody, Lispector is an emblematic twentieth-century artist who belongs in the same pantheon as Kafka and Joyce. — Edmund White

This is a book that, like a good painting, can be picked up anywhere and that will continue to reward renewed contact over months and years of acquaintance. — Scott Esposito (Barnes & Noble Review)

Her images dazzle even when her meaning is most obscure, and when she is writing of what she despises she is lucidity itself.   — The Times Literary Supplement

I had a sort of missionary urge with her...but I started thinking, even when I was 19: How can I help this person reach the prominence she deserves? — Benjamin Moser

One of 20th-century Brazil’s most intriguing and mystifying writers. — The L Magazine
