Here’s a new poem translation from my latest project, Paula Abramo’s book Fiat Lux, from Mexico. Click the link for translation, original, and translator’s note, all in the Fall 2019 edition of Asymptote translation e-mag.
And -- just in -- here are five more in January 2020 issue of Brooklyn Rail InTranslation.
More to follow in The Bitter Oleander (Spring 2020), and other journals.

Winner of 2018 Northern California Book Award for fiction translation:
"A delightful and one could say overdue project, with an informative and entertaining introduction -- a must read -- about the history, presence, language, and culture of baseball in Latin America."
Spitball magazine: "Fresh, exciting material, these 18 short stories from accomplished Latin American writers not only reflect a love of baseball equal to our own, they demonstrate fine literary talent previously inaccessible to us. Highly recommended."
