The continuing translation of Clarice Lispector's oeuvre into English reaches new heights with the release of her complete crónicas--essays--which appeared in a Brazilian newspaper at the peak of her career between 1967 and 1973. These short nonfiction pieces complement Lispector’s brilliant novels and short stories, bringing her trademark passion and flair for observation to a range of topics. Her readers already know her as a writer granted special access to humanity’s inner workings, and this collection only deepens our admiration for her powers.
