The likes of The New York Times and Kirkus Review have nicknamed the novelist, Ruchama King Feuerman, the Jewish Jane Austen. Her most recent novel, In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist is being published by NYRBLIT, a new e-book series that cites as its goal to find books of literary merit from around the world. Her first novel Seven Blessings and her current novel are both set in Jerusalem where the author says, “outrageous stories are handed to you, and then you have to tone them down to make them believable”. Her stories and essays have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, and she is a winner of the 2012 Moment Magazine Short Fiction Prize, selected by the novelist Walter Mosley.
