Soulstorm: Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The realm of Lispector's fiction is the inner life; self-knowledge is her main concern. Like James Joyce's Dubliners, her protagonists live small, stifled lives, often unaware of their own suffering, but her lucid and richly textured narratives allow us, the readers, the epiphanies that they themselves are denied.

Synopsis:

The twenty-none stories in Soulstorm were originally published in two separate volumes in 1974--A Via Crucis do Corpo (The Stations of the Body) and Onde Estivestes de Noite (Where You Were at Night)--and are now combined and sensitively translated into English by Alexis Levitan.
