Nadila is a writer who believes blindly in the redemptive power of literature. In her search for her own voice, she sets to work studying the complete oeuvre of Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. As if trying different styles in front of a mirror, the protagonist, who can’t quite figure out who she is or what she has to say, measures herself against the formidably seductive Clarice: she reads her books, copies her style, searches for her, and even ventures with her to the boundaries between imagination and reality. I’m a Box is a 21st-century novel about the adventure of imaginative discovery (one detail at a time).
