A meditation on the nature of life and time, Agua Viva (1973) shows Lispector discovering a new means of writing about herself, more deeply transforming her individual experience into a universal poetry. In a body of work as emotionally powerful, formally innovative, and philosophically profound as Clarice Lispector s, Agua Viva stands out as a particular triumph."

Review:

One of 20th-century Brazil's most intriguing and mystifying writers.

This is a book that, like a good painting, can be picked up anywhere and that will continue to reward renewed contact over months and years of acquaintance.--Scott Esposito (06/21/2012)

Brilliant and unclassifiable... Glamorous, cultured, moody, Lispector is an emblematic twentieth-century artist who belongs in the same pantheon as Kafka and Joyce.--Edmund White

Her images dazzle even when her meaning is most obscure, and when she is writing of what she despises she is lucidity itself.-- (06/21/2012)

About the Author:

Clarice Lispector (1920-1977), the greatest Brazilian writer of the twentieth century, has been called "astounding" (Rachel Kushner), "a penetrating genius" (Donna Seaman, Booklist), and "one of the twentieth century's most mysterious writers" (Orhan Pamuk).

Born in Belem, Brazil, in 1974, Stefan Tobler is a translator from Portuguese and German. He won English PEN's Writers in Translation prize. His translation of Raduan Nassar's A Cup of Rage was longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker International Prize.

Benjamin Moser is the author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector, a finalist for the National Book Critics' Circle award. At New Directions, he edits the new translation of Clarice Lispector's work, of which The Besieged City is the eighth volume. For promoting her work around the world, the Brazilian government awarded him the first State Prize in Cultural Diplomacy. A former books columnist at Harper's Magazine and The New York Times Book Review, his latest book, Sontag: Her Life and Work, is published by Ecco Press.
