The Hour of the Star: Clarice Lispector


Living in the slums of Rio and eking out a living as a typist, Macab?a loves movies, Coca-Cola and her philandering rat of a boyfriend; she would like to be like Marilyn Monroe, but she is ugly, underfed, sickly and unloved. She has no future, and no sense of who she is. For her, reality is ‘too enormous to grasp’. Yet telling her story is the narrator Rodrigo S.M., who tries to direct Macabea’s fate but comes to realize that, for all her outward misery, she is inwardly free.
