About the Author
Maria Judite de Carvalho (1921-1998) is widely considered one of Portugal's most important writers of the second half of the twentieth century. Born and educated in Lisbon, with a secondary education in France, Carvalho's work spans painting, journalism, and fiction, with a specialization in the short story and novella forms. A writer of great concision with an eye on modernization, the changing politics of Portugal, and the effect of contemporary life on everyday people, especially women, Carvalho published widely and to great critical acclaim in her time. Empty Wardrobes is her first work available in English.
