“Hilda Hilst’s characters are often revealed in the state of Bewusstsein: “much more Awareness than consciousness".... I remain in awe of this book, stimulated through its powerfully rich and expansive arcade. John Keene’s beautiful translation of Hilda Hilst’s Letters from a Seducer couples the orgasmic with the writerly, the book edging between filth and feeling.” (Ronaldo V. Wilson)
“Letters of a Seducer seduces the reader with all the strategies available to a fine writer: wit, wonderfully inventive language lushly captured by the translator, an intriguing story―and did I say sexuality that broils and bubbles along at a mad and marvelous intensity? This is a brilliant performance!” (Samuel R. Delany)
