Clarice Lispector’s Complete Stories, 85 in all, are an epiphany, among the important books of this―or any―year

The recent publication by New Directions of five Lispector novels revealed to legions of new readers her darkness and dazzle. Now, for the first time in English, are all the stories that made her a Brazilian legend: from teenagers coming into awareness of their sexual and artistic powers to humdrum housewives whose lives are shattered by unexpected epiphanies to old people who don’t know what to do with themselves. Clarice’s stories take us through their lives―and ours.

From one of the greatest modern writers, these stories, gathered from the nine collections published during her lifetime, follow an unbroken time line of success as a writer, from her adolescence to her death bed.

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.”

Review:

Complete Stories is an enchanting compilation marked by Lispector’s sharp and stylistically playful use of language.”
- Art in America

“Clarice Lispector had a diamond-hard intelligence, a visionary instinct, and a sense of humor that veered from a naif wonder to wicked comedy.”
- Rachel Kushner

“One of the hidden geniuses of the twentieth century.”
- Colm Tóbín

“Lispector reads with lively intelligence and is terrifically funny. Language, for her, was the self''s light.”
- Lorrie Moore

“The elusive genius who dramatized a fractured interior world in rich, synesthetic prose.”
- Megan O'Grady, Vogue

“Clarice Lispector is the premier Latin American prose writer of the century.”
- New York Times Books Review

The Complete Stories is bound to become a kind of bedside Bible or I Ching for readers of Lispector, both old and new.”
- Valeria Luiselli, Publishers Weekly

“Her long-awaited arrival ― of which this is only the beginning ― might be compared to the translation and publication of Kafka’s work in early 1940s.”
- *Flavorwire*

“To fans, Lispector is simply 'Clarice,' like Cher or Madonna or her countryman, Pele.”
- Brenda Cronin, The Wall Street Journal

“Through these 85 stories, these mini invasions, it's apparent that yes, Clarice Lispector was indeed a singular artist. Decades after her death, she continues to champion the possibilities of language, and its ability to mesmerize.”
- Juan Vidal, NPR
