Overview

The twenty-none stories in Soulstorm were originally published in two separate volumes in 1974—A Via Crucis do Corpo (The Stations of the Body) and Onde Estivestes de Noite (Where You Were at Night)—and are now combined and sensitively translated into English by Alexis Levitan.
The realm of Lispector's fiction is the inner life; self-knowledge is her main concern. Like James Joyce's Dubliners, her protagonists live small, stifled lives, often unaware of their own suffering, but her lucid and richly textured narratives allow us, the readers, the epiphanies that they themselves are denied.

Meet 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.”

Alexis Levitan's translations of Clarice Lispector's stories won the 1984 Van de Bovencamp-Armand G. Erpf International Award, given by the Translation Center, Columbia University.
