In 1999, he received the Raiziss/de Palchi Translation Fellowship from the Academy of American Poets for his work on Cesare Pavese's poetry. The resulting volume, Disaffections: Complete Poems 1930-1950 (Copper Canyon, 2002), received the MLA's Lois Roth Translation Award and the PEN Center USA's Translation Award, and was named one of the "Best Books of 2003" by the Los Angeles Times. He is also the translator of books by Roberto Calasso and Umberto Eco.

His first collection of poems, Weighing Light (Ivan R.

He was a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford from 2002-2004 and a Guggenheim Fellow from 2005-2006.
