Ruby Namdar, born and raised in Jerusalem to a family of Iranian-Jewish heritage, now lives in New York City. The Ruined House (translated from Hebrew by Hillel Halkin) won the 2015 Sapir Prize, Israel’s most prestigious literary prize. Newsweek called it a “wildly original novel…unsettling and beautifully written,” as it follows the gradually crumbling life of New York University Jewish American professor Andrew P. Cohen.
