Short story writer Edith Pearlman has won the National Book Critics Circle award for fiction.
New England writer Edith Pearlman has won the PEN/Malamud Award for excellence in the "art of short fiction."
"Some refugees from Europe came through my hometown during the war, and I have met others throughout my life, all trying with more or less success to make a home in the New World," Pearlman, who grew up in Providence, R.I., explained during an interview in November. "These people were traumatized by what had happened to their homeland and their co-religionists; yet they managed to be light when they could, and they banished self-pity from their outer life."
