09/20/2012 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

We will be reading Benjamin Moser's new translation of this novel, published by New Directions in 2011. Copies will be available at the Poetry Center gift kiosk. This book club discussion will be led by fiction writer Mike Powell.

“A new translation of Clarice Lispector’s searing last novel, The Hour of the Star by Lispector biographer Benjamin Moser—with an introduction by Colm Tóibín—reveals the mesmerizing force of the revitalized modernist’s Rio-set tale of a young naïf, who, along with the piquantly intrusive narrator, challenges the reader’s notions of identity, storytelling, and love.”—Vogue
