1 Review
'Soulstorm' contains twenty-nine stories of the brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. They were originally published in two separate volumes, 'The Stations of the Body' and 'Where you were at Night'. Like James Joyce's 'Dubliners', Lispector's characters live small stifled lives, often unware of their own suffering, but her lucid and richly textured narratives allow us, the readers, the epiphanies that they themselves are denied.

Should probably read more of her to get an idea, but couldn't get through the first short story, Miss Algrave. Some of the lines here are fairly bad. Writing is at about a 101 creative writing class level.
