Praise For…


I felt physically jolted by genius.
— Katherine Boo - Financial Times

Reading Lispector is like being handed a world on fire.
— Juan Vidal - NPR

Translated beautifully and with a vigorous pulse by Katrina Dodson, The Complete Stories is bound to become a kind of bedside Bible or I Ching for readers of Lispector, both old and new.
— Valeria Luiselli - Publishers Weekly (starred)

A dangerous book to read quickly or casually because its so consistently delirious. Her Complete Stories is a remarkable book, proof that she is one of the true originals of Latin American literature.
— Terrence Rafferty - The New York Times Book Review

Utterly original and brilliant, haunting and disturbing.
— Colm Tibn

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
