Mary Caponegro was born in Brooklyn in 1956, of Italian and German ancestry. Both her parents were trained as physicians. Her undergraduate degree is from Bard College, where she studied Literature, Creative Writing, and Music. A chapbook entitled Addressing the Negative appeared in 1981, before she began her graduate work. She received a Master’s in fiction from the Brown University Graduate Writing Program in 1983, under the tutelage of John Hawkes. Her first collection, Tales From the Next Village (Lost Roads, 1985) was selected by the National Endowment of the Arts for the Buenos Aires Book Fair. In 1988, Caponegro received the General Electric Award for Younger Writers for her story “Materia Prima.” Her collection, The Star Café was published by Scribner’s in 1990. In 1991, Caponegro received the Rome Prize in Literature, awarding her a year-long fellowship at the American Academy in Rome, where she began work on her next collection, Five Doubts, a metafictional homage to Italian art and culture, which was published by Marsilio in 1998. Her subsequent two collections, The Complexities of Intimacy and All Fall Down, were published by Coffee House Press in 2001 and 2009. In each of them, Caponegro continued to explore the profund absurdity and poignancy of human interaction. Her fiction, which is characterized by formal innovation, lyricism, and syntactic density. has appeared in numerous periodicals, including Tin House, The Review of Contemporary Fiction, The Iowa Review, The Fairy Tale Review, Black Clock, Salt Hill, and most frequently, Conjunctions, and has been included in anthologies such as You’ve Got to Read This (Harper Perennial), The Italian American Reader (Perennial Currents), and The Anchor Book of New American Short Stories (Anchor/Random House). Over the years, several of her stories (“The Star Café,” “An Etruscan Catechism,” and “Ashes Ashes”) were recognized in the 100 Other Distinguished Stories of the Year section of The Best American Short Stories. Caponegro’s honors include The Bruno Arcudi Award for Italian American literary excellence and the Charles Flint Kellogg Award, as well as fellowships from Yaddo, the Lannan Foundation, and the Civitella Ranieri Foundation. In her long teaching career she was appointed by a number of academic institutions: Brown University, The Rhode Island School of Design, The Institute of American Indian Arts, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Syracuse University, and Bard College, where she since 2002 has been holding the Richard B. Fisher Family Chair in Literature and Writing. There she teaches alongside the poet and musician Michael Ives, her partner for twenty-three years.

Daniela Daniele teaches American Language and Literature at the University of Udine, and incessantly commutes between Victorian and contemporary American writings. Her translation of Mary Caponegro’s “Because I Could Not Stop For Death” appeared as “Perché non ho potuto fermarmi davanti alla morte” in Storie 1 (2016) 2 Her translations of “Ashes, Ashes” (“Cenere”) and “Tombola” appeared in Il Caffé illustrato, 3 (novembre/dicembre 2001): 22-32 and 6 (maggio-giugno 2002): 22-29.
