Poetry. PIERROT'S FINGERNAILS is the much-anticipated first collection of poetry by Kit Schluter, known to many as an acclaimed translator of French and Spanish literature. Like a garden labyrinth, the poems in this book offer unexpected pleasures and revelations, of curiosity, weirdness, society, solitude, and warmth.
Kit Schluter is a poet-translator and bookmaker living in Mexico City. Among his published and forthcoming translations from the French, Occitan, and Spanish are books by Olivia Tapiero, Anne Kawala, Jaime Saenz, Michel Surya, Julio Torri, Marcel Schwob, Amandine André, and Clamenç Llansana, with others on the way. He is recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in translation, a Glascock Prize, and a "Discovery"/Boston Review Prize, and holds an MFA in poetry from Brown University. Kit co-edits O'clock Press, designs for Nightboat Books and Juan Malasuerte Editories, and with Tatiana Lipkes organizes the monthly reading series at Aeromoto, a public arts library in Mexico City.Author City: MEXICO CITY MEX
