Franca Mancinelli was born in 1981 in Fano, Italy. Her books have won several prizes in Italy, where she is considered to be one of the most compelling new voices in Italian poetry. Much of her writing is already available in John Taylor’s translations: The Little Book of Passage (The Bitter Oleander Press, 2018) and At an Hour’s Sleep from Here (The Bitter Oleander Press, 2019). Other poems and prose texts have been published, in Taylor’s translations, in Trafika Europe, Journal of Italian Translation, Strands, AzonaL, Osiris, The Blue Nib, Bengaluru Review, January Review, and The Fortnightly Review. Her latest book of poems, Tutti gli occhi che ho aperto (All the Eyes that I have Opened), has just been published in Italy by Marcos y Marcos.
