Synopsis:

A revelation for readers of Clarice Lispector's novels and stories, "Selected Cronicas" presents for the first time in America a new dimension to Brazil's greatest twentieth-century writer. The chronicle, a literary genre peculiar to Brazil, allows poets and novelists to address a wide. readership on any theme they like. Lispector's Saturday column from 1967 to 1973 in Rio's leading newspaper, the "Jornal do Brasil", was, even by Brazilian standards, extraordinarily free-ranging and intimate--astonishingly so to readers of U.S. newspapers. The 156 crônicas collected here--variously taking the form of serialized stories, essays, aphorisms, conversations with taxi drivers, random thoughts, introspective revelations, memories--are endlessly delightful. Her insights make one sit up and think, whether about pets or children or society women or love: "Wrath and hatred are the sorrow of not being able to love"; "Generosity (akin to love) is the very core of our humanity"; "Love can never be a bad thing. But it often turns out to be hatred in disguise."


Review:

"One might have thought that so stern a `new novelist' would scorn the chatty style required. Far from it: she discovered her own extraordinary idiom--intimate, revelatory, mystificatory....This long flirtation with her readers was a triumphant metamorphosis for the avant garde author supposedly dead to the world."

Lorna Sage, Times Literary Supplement

Review:

"[Lispector's 'Cronicas' are] a fascinating mixture of aphorism and introspection [which] extrapolate the most surprising treatises from the most banal events..."

Irish Times

Book Description: New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 132 mm. Brand New Book. In 1967, Brazil s leading newspaper asked the avant-garde writer Lispector to write a weekly column on any topic she wished. For almost seven years, Lispector showed Brazilian readers just how vast and passionate her interests were. This beautifully translated collection of selected columns, or cronicas, is just as immediately stimulating today and ably reinforces her reputation as one of Brazil s greatest writers. Indeed, these columns should establish her as being among the era s most brilliant essayists. She is masterful, even reminiscent of Montaigne, in her ability to spin the mundane events of life into moments of clarity that reveal greater truths. Publishers Weekly.
