Hilda Hilst (1930– 2004) was born in Jaú, a small town in the state of São Paulo. A poet, novelist, and playwright, she is recognized as one of the most important and controversial names in Brazilian contemporary literature and received some of Brazil’s most prestigious literary prizes. Several of her books are available in English translation from Nightboat Books, including The Obscene Madame D, Letters from a Seducer, and Fluxo-Floema.
