The morning became a long, drawn-out afternoon that became depthless night dawning innocently through the house'

Tales of desire and madness from this giant of Brazilian literature. Clarice Lispector was a Brazilian novelist and short story writer. Her innovation in fiction brought her international renown. She was born in the Ukraine in 1920, but in the aftermath of World War I and the Russian Civil War, the family fled to Romania and eventually Brazil. She published her first novel, Near to the Wildheart in 1943 when she was just twenty-three, and the next year was awarded the Grapa Aranha Prize for the best first novel. She died in 1977, shortly after the publication of her final novel, The Hour of the Star. Fifty new books, celebrating the pioneering spirit of the Penguin Modern Classics series, from inspiring essays to groundbreaking fiction and poetry.
