Clarice Lispector: Complete Stories
Author: Clarice Lispector
Editor: Benjamin Moser
Translator: Katrina Dodson
Publisher: New Directions (2018)
Here, gathered in one volume, are the stories that made Clarice Lispector a Brazilian legend. Originally a cloth edition of eighty-six stories, now we have eighty-nine in all, covering her whole amazing career, from her teenage years to her deathbed. In these pages, we meet teenagers becoming aware of their sexual and artistic powers, humdrum housewives whose lives are shattered by unexpected epiphanies, old people who don’t know what to do with themselves—and in their stories, Lispector takes us through their lives—and hers—and ours.
