Version 2I’m a freelance literary editor, and I write long form journalism and book reviews for the Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, The Nation, Haaretz, Fantastic Man, and the Observer, among others.

I also translate books, most recently Memories of Low Tide, by Chantal Thomas (Pushkin Press) and Chinese Spies, by Roger Faligot (Hurst). Other recent translations include A Call for Revolution, by the Dalai Lama (Rider),  Journey to the Land of the Real, by Victor Segalen, Robert Desnos’ The Punishments of Hell, and George Bataille’s The Sacred Conspiracy (all three published by Atlas Press).

I won a Rockower award for journalism in 2016, and in 2017 my co-translation (with Cécile Menon) of Suite for Barbara Loden, by Nathalie Léger, won the  Scott Moncrieff Translation Prize. In 2017 I was a jury member for the JQ–Wingate Literary Prize.
