Clarice Lispector

The Chandelier

€13,95

Available in English for the first time, The Chandelieris one of Lispector's most radical books and a key part of what made her a Brazilian legend.

'She found the best clay that one could desire: white, supple, sticky, cold . . . She would get a clear and tender material from which she could shape a world'

Like the clay from which she sculpts figurines as a girl, Virginia is constantly shifting and changing. From her dreamlike childhood on Quiet Farm with her adored brother Daniel, through an adulthood where the past continues to pull her back and shape her, she moves through life, grasping for the truth of existence. Illuminating Virginia's progress through intense flashes of image, sensation and perception, The Chandelier, Lispector's landmark second novel, is a disorienting and exhilarating portrait of one woman's inner life.
