I've mentioned Sana Krasikov and her debut story collection, One More Year, on this blog a couple of times, but boy, do I regret not writing up something more substantive after I read the book a few months back! And that's because Krasikov has been racking up honors and awards since then, most recently yesterday, when she was named the winner of the 2009 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
Congratulations to Sana Krasikov. I am really looking forward to the awards ceremony!
In the meantime, here are a few links to help you can learn more about Krasikov and her work.
