DEVILSPEL in English translation has won the EBRD Literature Prize

Congratulations to author and translator!
Grigori Kanovich’s novel DEVILSPEL is the winner of the 2020 EBRD Literature Prize by the London-based European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD).

«Devilspel is a moving and elegant novel of fine character portraits, told in restrained but beautiful prose, set in a small town in Lithuania at a watershed moment of history, when ethnic cleansing and the Holocaust enter the lives of the local Jews and non-Jews alike, dividing neighbours and families into persecuted and persecutors.» ROSIE GOLDSMITH, Chair of the Judges
