Book in Praise of Older Women gets Israel's Sapir Prize
Esther Peled is not like other Israeli authors. First of all, she is a woman. While the Israeli literary scene has its fair share of prominent and prolific female authors, the heavyweights of this industry — David Grossman, Etgar Keret, A.B. Yehoshua, Amos Oz — are undeniably male. But for Peled, who last month won the Sapir Prize for Literature, Israel’s highest literary honor, gender just scratches the surface of her refusal to follow convention.
