The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Nicole Krauss


Internationally bestselling Jewish-American author Nicole Krauss said she wrote her fourth and most recent work, Forest Dark, "out of the depths of lifelong reflections on Israel," according to the Times of Israel. The Financial Times praised the novel, which features two Jewish protagonists who travel to Israel from New York, as "a richly layered masterpiece … [that] does what only the very best fiction can do – startles, challenges and enlightens the reader, while showing the familiar world anew.” Krauss’ third novel, Great House, won an Anisfield-Wolf Book award and was shortlisted for the prestigious Orange Prize, as was her second novel, The History of Love, which was awarded the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing.
