She died of stomach cancer at the age of 25.
Sawako Nakayasu was born in Japan and has lived mostly in the US since the age of six. Her most recent books are THE ANTS (Les Figues, 2014) and a translation of THE COLLECTED POEMS OF SAGAWA CHIKA (Canarium Books, 2014). She is also the author of SO WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN TIME OR (Verse Press/Wave Books, 2004), NOTHING FICTIONAL BUT THE ACCURACY OR ARRANGEMENT (SHE (Quale Press, 2006), and TEXTURE NOTES (Letter Machine Editions, 2010). Her other translations include FOUR FROM JAPAN: CONTEMPORARY POETRY & ESSAYS BY WOMEN (Litmus Press, 2006), To the Vast Blooming Sky by Sagawa (2007), and For the Fighting Spirit of the Walnut by Hiraide (2008).
