Celebrating Edith Pearlman

The National Book Critics’ Circle Award in fiction was awarded last night to Edith Pearlman. The victory of this avowedly Jewish writer is significant in many respects, but we take special pride in noting that one of her first published stories appeared in COMMENTARY.

For more about Pearlman’s work, please read D.G. Myers’ appreciation of her on our Literary Commentary blog, and as a special treat, her story “Settlers,” which appeared first in the January 1986 issue of COMMENTARY.
