The first thing I read by Clarice Lispector was Idra Novey’s translation of The Passion According to G.H., a book that I know I’m not alone in saying stayed with me, planted in my memory like some alien obelisk. Recently, I heard that Novey had a novel forthcoming. I was on the lookout for a third subject for this interview series, so I thought I could read the novel and everything in between then, if fate allowed it, put some questions to her.
This has been one of my favourite things about being on the 3:AM team – putting questions to writers about my experiences with their work has been no small privilege. Big thanks to Idra.
