"That rare person who looked like Marlene Dietrich and wrote like Virginia Woolf," Clarice Lispector is one of the most popular but least understood of Latin American writers. Now, after years of research on three continents, drawing on previously unknown manuscripts and dozens of interviews, Benjamin Moser demonstrates how Lispector's development as a writer was directly connected to the story of her turbulent life. Born in the nightmarish landscape of post-World War I Ukraine, Clarice became, virtually from adolescence, a person whose beauty, genius, and eccentricity intrigued Brazil. Why This World tells how this precocious girl, through long exile abroad and difficult personal struggles, matured into a great writer. It also asserts, for the first time, the deep roots in the Jewish mystical tradition that make her the true heir to Kafka as well as the unlikely author of "perhaps the greatest spiritual autobiography of the twentieth century." From Chechelnik to Recife, from Naples and Berne to Washington and Rio de Janeiro, Why This World strips away the mythology surrounding this extraordinary figure and shows how Clarice Lispector transformed one woman's struggles into a universally resonant art.… (mere)

Today (2022 0718 tu) the author published the advanced reading copy cover of Too Much of Life on insta.

Therefore I searched a little bit further and found 'the' biography. The English! discription is quite moving imho.

this book is a thesis of uu and dedicated to his two men

«Clarice Lispector es la escritora brasileña más estudiada de su siglo, y no solo en su país de origen. Pero el misterio es parte del universo clariceano y hay que partir de él para comprender la especificidad de su obra». ANNA CABALLÉ, El País «Una extraordinaria y minuciosa mezcla de puzle biográfico, de magistral crítica y análisis literario, así como de escritura sumamente seductora y clarificadora». MERCEDES MONMANY, ABC «Una biografía digna de su protagonista... Por fin una de las más enigmáticas escritoras del siglo XX retratada en todo su vibrante colorido». ORHAN PAMUK «Detallada, original y repleta de sensibilidad hacia lo que debe quedar oculto y lo que debe saberse. Moser ha escrito un libro fantástico sobre una heroína judía cuya familia vivió algunos de los peores episodios del siglo pasado en Europa. También hace un magnífico retrato del Brasil moderno donde se reconoce su genio y el trabajo de Lispector se considera un tesoro». COLM TÓIBÍN «Benjamin Moser ha recreado el contexto psicológico y social necesario para entender a esta gran escritora y ha insuflado vida a su naturaleza esencialmente trágica en toda su complejidad». EDMUND WHITE En esta biografía, que es ya un libro de referencia en todo el mundo, Benjamin Moser desentraña los mitos que rodean a una de las más extraordinarias figuras de la literatura contemporánea y nos muestra cómo Clarice Lispector transformó su lucha personal como mujer en una obra de resonancia universal.

I feel like everything I've ever read has been priming me for Clarice Lispector; not that she's my new favorite writer, but I'm able to read her books entirely without suspicion. She writes about emotion, not melodrama, writes about experience as though it were the first time ever felt. Reminds me of music. Attempts to elucidate her mystique show how transparent she really is, vulnerable even, vulnerability being such a rare and precious thing in writers. "Still alive because it was only 9 in the morning," from a short story. And something, I can't find the quote, about sorrow without anger, like looking for the seafloor from a boat and not finding it, from "Near to the Wild Heart." Love it, can't get enough. ( )

De legende Lispector was een vrouw van wie werd gezegd dat ze ‘leek op Marlene Dietrich en schreef als Virginia Woolf’, die ‘was wat Kafka geweest zou zijn’ als hij als vrouw was geboren en die vaker werd vergeleken met mystici en heiligen dan met collega-schrijvers. Een vrouw die in de Oekraïne ter wereld kwam en zou uitgroeien tot ‘de prinses van de Portugese taal’, een van de grootste schrijvers van het Latijns-Amerikaanse continent.
 
Lively, ardent and intellectually rigorous... [This] energetically researched, finely argued biography will surely win Lispector the English-­language readership she deserves.
 
Mr. Moser, for the most part, is a lucid and very learned tour guide, and his book is a fascinating and welcome introduction to a writer whose best work should be better known in this country.
