Original title: A Legião Estrangeira (1964)
Author: Clarice Lispector
Translator: Giovanni Pontiero

The Foreign Legion is a collection in two parts, gathering both stories and chronicles, and it offers wonderful evidence of Clarice Lispector’s unique sensibility and range as an exponent of experimental prose. It opens with thirteen stories and the second part of the book presents her newspaper cronicas, which Lispector said she retrieved from a bottom drawer. (Source: publisher)
