Diane Whitty

I translate nonfiction and fiction from Brazilian Portuguese. My major book translations include "The Collector of Leftover Souls" by Eliane Brum, which was longlisted for the 2019 National Book Award in Translated Literature; "The Sanitation of Brazil" by Gilberto Hochman; and "Baroque: Soul of Brazil" by Affonso Romano de Sant’Anna. I have also translated prose and poetry by Adriana Lisboa, Marina Colasanti, Mário Quintana, and children’s author Tino Freitas. My work has appeared in Harper’s, Granta, Paris Review, Litro, New York Times, Guardian, Glossalia, Atmos, and Manoa. Graywolf will publish my translation of "Banzeiro Ókótò: Amazon Center of the World" by Eliane Brum, in 2023.
