Synopsis

The publication of Clarice Lispector's Collected Stories, eighty-five in all, is a major literary event. Now, for the first time in English, are all the stories that made her a Brazilian legend: from teenagers coming into awareness of their sexual and artistic powers to humdrum housewives whose lives are shattered by unexpected epiphanies to old people who don't know what to do with themselves. Lispector's stories take us through their lives - and ours. From one of the greatest modern writers, these 85 stories, gathered from the nine collections published during her lifetime, follow Clarice Lispector throughout her life.

Clarice Lispector was a Brazilian novelist and short story writer. Her innovation in fiction brought her international renown. She was born in the Ukraine in 1920, but in the aftermath of World War I and the Russian Civil War, the family fled to Romania and eventually Brazil. She published her first novel, Near to the Wildheart in 1943 when she was just twenty-three, and the next year was awarded the Graca Aranha Prize for the best first novel. She died in 1977, shortly after the publication of her final novel, The Hour of the Star.

Staff Choice

There is a story in this collection, Intimitation of a Rose, that is, I think, one of the finest ever composed. On the basis of that text alone, this book is essential and yet it is just one of many wonders contained within this volume. Lispector revolutionised Portuguese prose, in a way that is often compared to Woolf and Joyce on the development of English, and there really is no other writer quite like her. In the hands of Clarice Lispector, a sentence is an extraordinary and unpredictable thing.
