Magic & Realism: The Work of Clarice Lispector
Guest host Sonia Manzano presents works by the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector, who was one of Brazils most famous writers before her death in 1977. In order to share her beautiful and mysterious work with a wider audience, we brought together readers and fans for a special evening at Symphony Space. It was hosted by one of our favorite leading men, Denis OHare, whom youll hear reading one of Lispectors stories. Lispector was a maverick in her exploration of womens emotional states and issues of gender, so shes been an influential presence on the literary scene. Weve included some reflections on her work and life by the Iranian-American novelist and essayist Porochista Khakpour, and one of Lispectors translators, the novelist and poet Idra Novey.
