writers being real

Writers being real is a collection of images of writers doing things like not writing. This collection is deliberately named. It could be called The Life of the Author, but then you might think I don't believe in The Death of the Author. And I do.

Clarice Lispector being real on the beach with her sons, Rio de Janeiro, 1959

Bonus: via BookForum, Lispector apparently once wrote an advice column (!) for a Rio paper. She gave this advice:

"Act as if your problems don’t exist,” and “No matter how French your perfume is, it’s often the grilled meat that matters.”
