Kafka in Bronteland

This entry was posted in Culture on by .

A few weeks ago, Tamar Yellin won the first $100,000 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature for her novel The Genizah at the House of Shepher.

Since the announcement, I’ve heard mixed things about the book, with some people praising the judges’ decision and others a bit shocked by Yellin’s purple prose.

I haven’t read The Genizah yet, but I did pick up Yellin’s short story collection, Kafka in Bronteland, which significantly impressed me.

I discuss the book in my latest column for the Jerusalem Post.
