Ruth Almog is an Israeli author. She was born in Petach Tikvah in 1936. Her parents were both religious Jewish doctors who came from Germany, and worked in bee keeping and honey production in their early years in Palestine. She studied at the David Yellin Teachers’ Seminary and worked as an elementary school teacher, and then studied Hebrew literature, theater and philosophy at Tel Aviv University. In 1967 she published her first short story in Haaretz newspaper, where she also began working as an assistant editor. In 1970 she published her first collection of stories, Marguereta’s Night Grace, and a year later her first novel, The Exile, was published. Almog’s unique work, prose that draws on autobiography and seeks to decipher childhood as a formative event, became a basic model of writing in Hebrew literature. Over the years she published children’s and young adult’s books, novels and story collections. A comprehensive selection of her short stories was published in 2002. She also writes regularly about books in the culture and literature section of Haaretz. Ruth Almog has won many prizes, including the Brenner Prize, the Agnon Prize, the Newman Prize for her Lifetime Achievement, and the Bialik Prize. She won twice the Wolf Prize for Children’s Literature, the Yad Vashem Prize for her book “My Journey with Alex” and an Andersen Honor Citation for the same book. In Germany she was awarded the Gerty-Spies Prize in Mainz. For years, she taught creative writing in various institutions, such as the Writers’ Association in Jerusalem and the Hebrew University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Her books were translated into many languages. Ruth Almog lives in Tel Aviv, married to the poet and writer Aharon Almog and a mother of two daughters.
