Literary Translations

As a translator of Italian literature since 2001, I have published novels, short stories, and collections of essays with both American and British publishing companies. My translations have won prizes and have been reviewed in major newspapers and magazines.

I studied Italian at Middlebury College, the University of California at Berkeley, the Università di Firenze, and Columbia University, but truly learned the language by living in Italy. I have spoken about translation at professional conferences and am involved with the American Literary Translators Association and PEN American Center. In 2018 I taught a graduate-level translation theory and practice class at Middlebury Summer Language Programs, and in 2019 I attended Breadloaf Translation Workshop in Vermont.
