More by this author

Her images dazzle even when her meaning is most obscure, and when she is writing of what she despises she is lucidity itself.

The Times Literary Supplement

This is a book that, like a good painting, can be picked up anywhere and that will continue to reward renewed contact over months and years of acquaintance.

—Scott Esposito, Barnes & Noble Review

Água Viva is like nothing else you’ve ever read, and, like the other Lispector re-editions, reading it is an experience you won’t want to miss.

The Coffin Factory

Brilliant and unclassifiable…Glamorous, cultured, moody, Lispector is an emblematic twentieth-century artist who belongs in the same pantheon as Kafka and Joyce.

—Edmund White
