In celebration of Scoundrel Time’s 5th anniversary, our editorial team is excited to announce the winners of our fifth annual Editors’ Choice Awards, selected from among the works we published in 2021. Jessie Van Eerden’s “Blessing for the Lice Check” is the award-winner in fiction.
Here’s what Editor Paula Whyman says about “Blessing for the Lice Check”:
This evocative piece, lyrical and expertly paced, travels through time and place, sentence by sentence, straddling past and present, memory and longing, before bringing the reader full circle. A multilayered and wholly fulfilling reading experience.
