Clarice Lispector

Clarice Lispector (1920-1977) is considered to be one of the most important Brazilian writers of the twentieth century. Lispector is difficult to classify as an author, and she herself described her style as a ‘non-style’. Her vast production includes short stories, novels, children’s literature, poems, photography and painting.
