Peter Sichrovsky to be included in Jewish fiction anthology

Boston-based publisher Academic Studies Press will be publishing a print anthology of 18 works of fiction from the Canadian online literary journal Jewish Fiction .net. Each story in the anthology is translated from a different language. “New York” by Peter Sichrovsky was translated from German by John Howard and edited by Ellie Shoja. Dr. Nora Gold, Editor-in-Chief of Jewish Fiction .net states: “This anthology will represent a major contribution to the field of Jewish literature and this translation from DoppelHouse Press will be a wonderful addition to it.” 

Having published more than 500 stories and excerpts in their over twelve-year history, Jewish Fiction .net is an exceptional resource for translated literature and features writers from all over the world. Congratulations, Peter!
