SWIFTIAN PRECCUPATION WITH THE BODY
Down The Hall Book Club June selection is Near To The Wild Heart > JUNE 15
"Near to the Wild Heart was immediately hailed as a masterpiece upon its publication in Brazil in 1943, introducing the world to "Hurricane Clarice", still only 23, who was to become one of the very great writers of the last century...The originality of Near to the Wild Heart lies in its technique and language: self-conscious, bleakly humorous, but poetic – 'The sun burst through the clouds and the little sparkles scintillating on the waters were tiny fires flaring up and dying out.' We now finally have a translation worthy of Clarice Lispector's inimitable style."
-- from a review in The Guardian by JS Tennant
