Jessica Moore is an author, translator and musician. Her book, Everything, now, has been called “a powerful journey through love and loss, serving, ultimately, to unsettle any notion of a boundary between them.” The collection is partly a conversation with her translation of Turkana Boy, a poetic novel by Jean-François Beauchemin, for which she won a PEN America Translation Award. Jessica’s translation of Birth of a Bridge by Maylis de Kerangal details a fantastical California in daring prose; her translation of de Kerangal’s moving and unusual story of a heart transplant, Mend the Living, is forthcoming in 2016 (Talonbooks, Canada; Maclehose Press, UK). Her debut solo album, Beautiful in Red, features her banjo, voice and body-percussion. All of her work examines loss and the connections that sustain us.
