Giorgio Mobili is a poet, translator, and literary critic. Born in Milan, Italy, he has lived in the US since 1999. He teaches Humanities and Spanish at California State University, Fresno. In his lyrical production, he has persistently explored, from a multi-lingual perspective, and with surrealistic flair, how cultural displacement reshapes one's inner geography through the intricate mobilization of memory, fantasy, and desire. His Italian poetry has appeared in several journals and five published collections, and has been included in the anthology Poets of the Italian Diaspora (Fordham UP, 2013). His first Spanish-language collection came out in Santiago, Chile, in 2014. His English poetry has appeared in The Tipton Poetry Journal, Pank Magazine, The Hiram Poetry Review, Ariel, and Gradiva. This is his first full-length collection in English.
