Daydream and Drunkenness of a Young Lady Summary

Daydream and Drunkenness of a Young Lady by Clarice Lispector

'The morning became a long, drawn-out afternoon that became depthless night dawning innocently through the house'

Tales of desire and madness from this giant of Brazilian literature.

Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson; essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous; taking us from the deep South to modern Japan, New York's underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space.

About Clarice Lispector

Clarice Lispector was a Brazilian novelist and short-story writer. Her innovation in fiction brought her international renown. She was born in the Ukraine in 1920, but in the aftermath of World War I and the Russian Civil War, the family fled to Romania and eventually Brazil. She published her first novel, Near to the Wildheart, in 1943, when she was just twenty-three, and the next year was awarded the Graca Aranha Prize for the best first novel. She died in 1977, shortly after the publication of her final novel, The Hour of the Star.
