featuring Chloe M. Hill, Teaching Assistant Professor of Portuguese

The devastating final work by Brazil’s greatest modern writer

Every page vibrates with feeling. It’s not enough to say that Lispector bends language or uses words in new ways. Plenty of modernists do that. No one else writes prose this rich. National Public Radio

Clarice Lispector is the premier Latin American woman prose writer of this century. She is studied by the scholars, but has never managed to reach the reading public. The Hour of the Star could change all that. —The New York Times

Slyly subverting ideas of poverty, identity, love and the art of writing itself, Clarice Lispector’s audacious last novel is a haunting portrayal of innocence in a bad world. Penguin Random House

“One of the twentieth century’s most mysterious writers” —Orhan Pamuk
