CLARICE

Our short novella for November will be The Hour of the Star by Clarice Lispector. The novel, which was made into a film (one of the “Berlinale: 1986 Prize Winners” – see pic), was the last she wrote before losing a battle with cancer on the eve of her 57th birthday.

Born in 1920, Lispector was a Brazilian writer and the first Brazilian we have read so we are very excited. There’s a bit more info on her here in this LA Times article.

See you all for your thoughts on the 8/11/12 at 7pm.
