To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A lovingly and painstakingly written study of a stunningly rewarding yet still under-appreciated writer - certainly in the anglophone world despite a flurry of recent translations. Moser is sensitive to the multiple dimensions of Lispector's life and work, and his attention to its context - whether in terms of her fraught family origin in Eastern Europe during a dark period of history post World War One or the chaotic politics of mid 20th century Brazil - is exemplary. I felt at times the book is a little repetitive and under-edited. Still, an absorbing read & has certainly enhanced my reading of - and my empathy for - the subject herself.
An authoress that was unknown to me ,but now an intriguing person, one of those people who make you think. An individual who sees the world from a different perspective. Always worthwhile to read any biography and their resultant works. Read it, and begin a journey .
