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.”

Magdalena Edwards is a writer, translator, and actor. Her work has appeared in the Boston Review, the Paris Review Daily, the Los Angeles Review of Books,
and the Millions.

Benjamin Moser is the author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics' Circle Award, and is also the editor of the New Directions Lispector program. A former books columnist at Harper's Magazine, Moser is now a columnist at The New York Times Book Review, and is currently at work on the authorized biography of Susan Sontag. He lives in the Netherlands.

I want to crawl out of my skin because I love her so. She is screaming, always screaming in my mind. She is beneath my ribcage, she has burrowed into whatever lies beneath organs and bone. Her pages vibrate and I am ruined. But she breathes again because she lives in me.
