Back in January, I noted the five finalists of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, administered by the Jewish Book Council of America. Well, the winner has just been announced: Tamar Yellin, author of The Genizah at the House of Shepher (Toby Press), and one of the two British finalists, has won the $100,000 prize (the largest-ever Jewish literary prize, and one of the largest literary prizes around). Congrats Tamar. The pints are on you!
Any of you good folk read this? After my Spinoza-fest, should this be next? And, by the way, have you seen my copy anywhere!? I can't find the darn thing!
