Reviews

Better than Borges.--Elizabeth Bishop
Lispector should be on the shelf with Kafka and Joyce.-- "Los Angeles Times"
Readers will delight in this short collection of luminous, laugh-out-loud stories from the late Brazilian cult writer Lispector...Though the author wrote these stories for her son when he was a child, and they often contain magic and lack in explanations, their small delights nonetheless rank high among Lispector's impressive body of work. In between the lines of these spellbinding worlds, she offers indelible glimpses of the way people live and dream. Even amid the silliest of scenarios are glimmers of the beauty of the everyday: "That's how life went on. Gently, gently." This is one to savor.-- "Publishers Weekly"
