Near to the Wild Heart

The sensational, prize-winning debut novel Near to the Wild Heart was published when author Clarice Lispector was just twenty-three and earned her the name ‘Hurricane Clarice’. It tells the story of Joana, from her wild, creative childhood, as the ‘little egg’ who writes poems for her father, through her marriage to the faithless Otávio and on to her decision to make her own way in the world. As Joana, endlessly mutable, moves through different emotional states, different inner lives and different truths, this impressionistic, dreamlike and fiercely intelligent novel asks if any of us ever really know who we are.

Complete Stories

For the first time in English, all the stories that made Clarice Lispector a Brazilian legend are collected together in one volume: from teenagers coming into awareness of their sexual and artistic powers to humdrum housewives whose lives are shattered by unexpected epiphanies to animals too deeply loved and then eaten. From one of the greatest modern writers, these eighty-five stories, gathered from the nine collections published during her lifetime, follow Clarice Lispector throughout her life.
