2012 Winner

Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize

for Siege 13

Jury Citation

“From the dark cityscapes of besieged Hungary to the émigré cafés of contemporary North America, Siege 13 spans continents and decades, and in doing so illustrates once again that old maxim: the short story can be both as broad and as deep as a novel. At times gently humorous, at times quietly wise, Dobozy’s 13 stories dazzle with their psychological nuance and brilliant attention to detail. These stories are never less than breathtaking.” — 2012 Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize Jury (Lynn Coady, Esi Edugyan, and Drew Hayden Taylor)
