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 "one of the twentieth century's most mysterious writers" (Orhan Pamuk). Katrina Dodson won the PEN Prize for Translation for Clarice Lispector's The Complete Stories. She is now at work on Macunaima, Mario de Andrade's legendary novel. Benjamin Moser is the author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector, a finalist for the National Book Critics' Circle award. At New Directions, he edits the new translation of Clarice Lispector's work, of which The Besieged City is the eighth volume. For promoting her work around the world, the Brazilian government awarded him the first State Prize in Cultural Diplomacy. A former books columnist at Harper's Magazine and The New York Times Book Review, his latest book, Sontag: Her Life and Work, is published by Ecco Press.

Reviews

"I felt physically jolted by genius." -- Katherine Boo - Financial Times
"Reading Lispector is like being handed a world on fire. " -- Juan Vidal - NPR
"Translated beautifully and with a vigorous pulse by Katrina Dodson, 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 (starred)
"A dangerous book to read quickly or casually because it's so consistently delirious. Her Complete Stories is a remarkable book, proof that she is one of the true originals of Latin American literature." -- Terrence Rafferty - The New York Times Book Review
"Utterly original and brilliant, haunting and disturbing." -- Colm Toibin
