Clarice Lispector Interviewed

So this is really cool. As Benjamin Moser puts it, “Clarice Lispector’s last and only televised interview, with English subtitles.”

Penguin UK is making a pretty good push for Lispector. Seen their promotional stuff a couple of times already.

Reminds me of Debbie Harry.

When’s her collected short stories coming out?
