|An author of deft touch and unique flavor.
Christian Science Monitor
Tamar Yellin's stories... share a dense ambition, layered with displacement, loss and yearning like the whole of Jewish history, waiting to be excavated.
Times Literary Supplement
Masterly... Yellin writes beautifully and with great insight... A tremendous success.
Infused with mystery and lyricism.
Enigmatic and beautiful.
Spare, beautifully controlled and elegant.
Every story in Tamar Yellin's KAFKA in BRONTËLAND closes with the decisive, revelatory resonance that marks the best examples of this literary form.
Judging panel, Reform Judaism Prize 2006
|From the Reviewers
Yellin's characters stand at the heart of human loss and are honoured for their power to endure, to pass for ordinary... Through it all, there moves a unifying spirit of kindness and intelligence which marks Tamar Yellin out as a short-story writer of rare distinction.
