Clarice Lispector (1920-1977), the greatest Brazilian writer of the twentieth century, has been called "astounding" (Rachel Kushner), "a penetrating Água Viva is perhaps the most mystical of her books. It is a meditation on the deepest nature of existence, and of the unfolding of her life moment-to-moment. Água viva, híbrido, sem enredo convencional, não é romance, poesia, diário, ensaio filosófico, mas tem fragmentos de cada um desses gêneros.
