The Wanderer Wins the 1998 Jewish Book Award for Fiction
Régine Robin has been awarded the 1998 Martin and Beatrice Fischer Prize for Fiction for her novel The Wanderer, which the jury described as "a wonderfully moving, poetic work of literature." The prize is one of nine awarded annually to Canadian books of Jewish interest. Last year's fiction winner was Anne Michaels's Fugitive Pieces.
Régine Robin is especially pleased to receive this recognition because The Wanderer is the first of her fiction to be translated into English. And her translator, Phyllis Aronoff, is equally proud.
