Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Clarice Lispector

  • Reviews
  • Praise for Clarice Lispector 'Her recurring theme is the fragility of peace and order, and the swarming of temptations in unlikely places. She would have understood (and perhaps did) Brecht’s phrase about the terrible temptation of goodness'.
    Arthur Marwick, London Review of Books
    'Clarice Lispector is a Brazilian writer, and for me she is thegreatest writer of the twentieth century. I rank her with Kafka...her work will become a model of "feminine writing".'
    Helene Cixous
    `Macabéa is one of the great antiheroines of modern fiction... the literary discovery of the decade.'
    Vogue
