Brazilian writer, Clarice Lispector. Wikipedia summarizes her birth "Born to a Jewish family in Podolia in Western Ukraine, she was brought to Brazil as an infant, amidst the disasters engulfing her native land following the First World War." She was intensely Brazilian, often reasserting this in public: though not born in Brazil, she was Brazilian. Her writing style was totally original. She wrote several works in stream of consciousness. My favorite of her novels is "The Hour of the Star."
