“At Night’s End” by Nir Baram is Longlisted for the prestigious JQ Wingate prize.
Nicole Krauss, Nir Baram, David Grossman, Martin Puchner, are among the nominees for the Wingate Prize for 2022 with their “powerful expressions of the diversity of Jewish experience”. The Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Literary Prize is an annual British literary prize inaugurated in 1977.
Baram’s novel was translated by Jessica Cohen, winner of the Booker award for 2017 and was published by ‘Text publishing’.
Past winners include VG Zebald, Zaidi Smith, Oliver Sachs, David Grossman and others.
Wingate doesn’t just recognise excellence in Jewish literature, it celebrates the rich diversity of Jewish life, creativity and thought. The entries this year represented that significantly. Our longlist was a real challenge to distil, as we had to choose 13 titles from some 70 entries.
