Translator Johanna Bishop grew up in Pennsylvania, was pigeonholed as a future translator by a standardized test in middle school, and has embraced that fate full-time since 2014. She has a particular interest in the overlap between literature and the visual arts. Her work has appeared in many journals and anthologies (most recently, Bennington Review, AGNI, and Tempo: Excursions in 21st Century Italian Poetry). Recent books include Tamam Shud by Alex Cecchetti, Oh mio cagnetto by Diego Marcon, and Fossils by Maria Grazia Calandrone. She lives in Tuscany. Since 2016, she is a resident translator of The FLR - The Florentine Literary Review project, now The Florence Review.
