Mansión nocturna, a second volume of collected works, is forthcoming from Monte Ávila in 2015. Among other distinctions, Roffé was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in poetry (2001) and, more recently, a Civitella Ranieri Foundation Center residency fellowship (2012). Roffé lives in New York City and is the founding director of Ediciones Pen Press.
