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 “a truly remarkable writer” (Jonathan Franzen). “Her images dazzle even when her meaning is most obscure,” noted the Times Literary
Supplement, “and when she is writing of what she despises, she is lucidity itself.”

Katrina Dodsonwon the PEN Prize for Translation for Clarice Lispector'sThe Complete Stories.
She is now at work on

Macunaima, Mario de Andrade’s legendary novel.
