In 1943 Lispector married Mauro Gurgel Valente, a fellow law student at the National Faculty of Law in Rio de Janeiro. After graduating with a law degree, she began working for the Rio de Janeiro newspaper, A noite. In 1944 she published her first novel, Perto do coração selvagem. Immediately it was applauded for its lyrical language and insightful treatment of the external events in a woman's life seen from an internal perspective. The novel was groundbreaking also because it marked a shift away from the realism and regionalism of traditional Brazilian literature to a modern aesthetic with universal and psychological concerns. Her next two novels, O lustre (1946) and A cidade sitiada (1948) were written while she lived in Europe, where her husband, then a diplomat, was posted. The couple and their two young boys moved to the United States in 1952. That year, Lispector's first collection of stories, Alguns contos , was published to little critical or commercial response.
