I am a journalist and literary translator based in Texas. Before moving south, I worked on the editorial staff at the New Yorker. Before that, I was a James Reston Reporting Fellow at the New York Times. I'm a member of the Overseas Press Club of America and Investigative Reporters and Editors, and my work on migration has been supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
My writing can be found in the New York Times (as E. C. Gogolak), the Nation, the New Yorker online, and the Village Voice, among other places, and in City by City: Dispatches from the American Metropolis (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2015).
My translation of the novel Moonbath (Deep Vellum, 2017) was awarded a French Voices Prize.
I grew up in Arizona, and I studied Comparative Literature at Brown and the Sorbonne.
