The Genius of Clarice Lispector
Hotel Rex | San Francisco, CA
This event has already taken place.
We collaborated with Litquake to celebrate that rare literary genius that was Clarice Lispector.
Blending the stream of conscious lyricism of Virginia Woolf with the dark, existential themes of Franz Kafka, Lispector’s novels have experienced a recent renaissance with four new translations, published last year to wide acclaim. Here, we paired two of Lispector’s translators with two acclaimed writers for a deep exploration of the infamous life and dazzling work of one of the 20th century’s great innovators.
Panelists: Idra Novey, Hector Tobar, Micheline Aharonian Marcom, and Katrina Dodson. Moderated by Two Lines Editor CJ Evans.
