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 "one of the twentieth century's most mysterious writers" (Orhan Pamuk).
Reviews
The Complete Stories is bound to become a kind of bedside Bible or I Ching for readers of Lispector, both old and new.--Valeria Luiselli "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
Sphinx, sorceress, sacred monster. The revival of the hypnotic Clarice Lispector has been one of the true literary events of the twenty-first century, with the real landmark, to my mind, her glittering and savage Complete Stories.--Parul Sehgal "The New York Times"
Terrifically funny: Language, for her, was the self's right.--Lorrie Moore
It's not enough to say that Lispector bends language or uses words in new ways. Plenty of modernists do that. No one else writes prose this rich.--Lily Meyer "NPR"
