Jessica Moore

Jessica Moore is an author and translator nominated for the 2016 Man Booker International Prize

Jessica Moore is an author and translator. Mend the Living, Jessica’s translation of the moving and unusual story of a heart transplant by French author Maylis de Kerangal, was nominated for the 2016 Man Booker International Prize. Jessica's collection of poems, Everything, now (Brick), has been called “a powerful journey through love and loss – serving, ultimately, to unsettle any notion of a boundary between them.” The book is partly a conversation with her translation of Turkana Boy (Talonbooks), a poetic novel by Jean-François Beauchemin, for which she won a PEN America Translation Award.
