Considered the greatest Brazilian writer of the twentieth century, Clarice Lispector often elicits worthy comparison to Joyce, Woolf, and Proust, and her genius is no less singular than theirs. Few writers are as adept at capturing the mystery of the simplest fact – of an object, of consciousness, of our very existence.

Mike Levine’s most recent Newberry seminar was on Marcel Proust’s Time Regained. He has a PhD in English from Rice University.
