The New York Times Book Review

The year’s season of retrospectives is now open, and one of the most respected in the literary circuit – the traditional list of 100 Notable Books of 2015, selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review – has included among the highlights for Fiction and Poetry the title The Complete Stories, a volume of short stories by Clarice Lispector edited by Benjamin Moser and published by the New York publishing house New Directions. The book is expected to be released in Portuguese in 2016 by Rocco.

Katrina Dodson, translator of the more than 80 stories in Complete Stories, spoke with the IMS Blog about her relation with Lispector’s literature, the difficulties she encountered in translating her work, and comparisons with writers such as Kafka, Machado de Assis, and Virginia Woolf.
