“This year the Dorset Prize was judged by Ilya Kaminsky, who – in a feat of nearly unprecedented generosity – read approximately 64 manuscripts, selected by the editors for his consideration, and in an even more magnanimous act, he wrote citations for every single one of those books.” –from the Tupelo Press website


WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ILYA KAMINSKY HAS SELECTED AMERICA, THAT ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF FRANCE BY JESSE LEE KERCHEVAL OF MADISON, WISCONSIN AS WINNER OF THIS YEAR’S DORSET PRIZE.
