Sarah Booker is an educator and literary translator working from Spanish to English. She has translated novels by Gabriela Ponce and Cristina Rivera Garza, and Mónica Ojeda’s Jawbone (Coffee House Press, 2021). Her work has also been published in journals such as The Paris Review, Asymptote, Latin American Literature Today, 3:AM Magazine, Nashville Review, and Translation Review. In Jawbone, six girls at a private Catholic high school in Ecuador turn to the occult in thrilling but increasingly dangerous rituals to a rhinestoned, Dior-scented, drag-queen god of their leader’s invention. This ominous novel explores the terror inherent in the pure potentiality of adolescence and the fine line between desire and fear.
