In 2016, Literal Publishing released bilingual editions of her translations of Alicia Borinsky’s My Husband’s Woman and Liliana Lukin’s Theater of Operations. She hopes to continue writing for all three genres, balancing her passions for fiction and nonfiction, while often combining them in her creative work.
