Description

‘One of the hidden geniuses of the twentieth century’ Colm Toibin’She suddenly leaned toward the mirror and sought the love liest way to see herself’Lucrecia Neves is vain, unreflective, insolently superficial, almost mute. She may have no inner life at all. As she morphs from small-town girl to worldly wife of a rich man, and her small home town surrenders to the forces of progress, Lucrecia seeks perfection: to be an object, serene, smooth, beyond the burden of words or even thought itself. A book that obsessed its author, The Besieged City is unlike any other work in Lispector’s canon: a story of transformation, of what it means to see and to be seen.
