Tiffany Tsao is a writer and literary translator. Of Chinese-Indonesian descent, she was born in the US but spent much of her childhood and adolescence in Singapore and Indonesia. Her translations from Indonesian to English include Norman Erikson Pasaribu’s poetry collection Sergius Seeks Bacchus, Dee Lestari’s novel Paper Boats, and Laksmi Pamuntjak’s The Birdwoman’s Palate. She currently lives with her family in Australia. Her latest work is a translation of Norman Erikson Pasaribu’s short story collection Happy Stories, Mostly which examines the “almost” happiness that so often defines queer experience. Often comic and deeply dark, these stories portray the sense of loss that for many accompanies ethnic, religious, or sexual alterity. The translation of Happy Stories, Mostly is published by Tilted Axis Press.
