The Genius of Clarice Lispector

Make sure to drop by Music & Literature and check out this audio, wherein two (Lispector) translators and two (Lispector-loving) novelists talk about one of their idols.

And while you’re there, pick up the just-published Issue #4 of Music & Literature, which (taa-daaa) offers an incredible, in-depth homage to Lispector, with writing by Mary Ruefle, Aharonian Marcom, Lispector herself, Rachel Kushner, several of Lispectors translators, and many more.

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
