Jesse Lee Kercheval is a poet, novelist, and translator.

“These superb translations by Jesse Lee Kercheval are faithful to the clarity and wisdom of the celebrated Uruguayan poet Circe Maia. Walk across The Invisible Bridge/ El Puente Invisible and you too will enter the graceful light Maia has been casting for decades over the troubled yet blessed landscapes of Latin America.” —Rigoberto Gonzalez

“The world in its raging, rich variety fills these poems, overflowing into vivid images that root Maia’s political and social attention firmly in the real scenes and objects all around us. Her eye is unfailing—both generous and demanding—and her language does indeed build bridges, establishing solid but surprising connections between ideas and things. Kercheval’s masterful translations create yet another bridge, bringing Maia’s poetic vision across into English with an astonishingly beautiful music.”—Cole Swenson

Praise for Circe Maia’s La Pesadora de Perlas
“This book helps to repair an injustice. It is unfair, very unfair that so many connoisseurs of the best poetry have not yet discovered Circe Maia. The revelation will be a high joy. I envy them that magical moment. It is one that will last.”—Eduardo Galeano
