Complete Stories


One of the most phenomenally acclaimed and successful books of recent years is now available as a paperback―with three just-discovered stories 

Here, gathered in one volume, are the stories that made Clarice a Brazilian legend. Originally a cloth edition of eighty-six stories, now we have eighty- nine in all, covering her whole amazing career, from her teenage years to her deathbed. In these pages, we meet teenagers becoming aware of their sexual and artistic powers, humdrum housewives whose lives are shattered by unexpected epiphanies, old people who don’t know what to do with themselves― and in their stories, Clarice takes us through their lives―and hers―and ours.

"I felt physically jolted by genius."
― Katherine Boo, Financial Times

"Reading Lispector is like being handed a world on fire. "
― Juan Vidal, NPR

"Translated beautifully and with a vigorous pulse by Katrina Dodson, The Complete Stories is bound to become a kind of bedside Bible or I Ching for readers of Lispector, both old and new."
― Valeria Luiselli, Publishers Weekly (starred)

"A dangerous book to read quickly or casually because it’s so consistently delirious. Her Complete Stories is a remarkable book, proof that she is one of the true originals of Latin American literature."
― Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times Book Review

"Utterly original and brilliant, haunting and disturbing."
― Colm Tóibín
