The Passion According to G.H., Clarice Lispectors mystical novel of 1964, concerns a well-to-do Rio sculptress, G.H., who enters her maids room, sees a cockroach crawling out of the wardrobe, and, panicking, slams the door--crushing the cockroach--and then watches it die. At the end of the novel, at the height of a spiritual crisis, comes the most famous and most genuinely shocking scene in Brazilian literature...

Lispector wrote that of all her works this novel was the one that "best corresponded to her demands as a writer."
