Jewish-American author Nathan Englander won the 2012 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award.

The award, for his short story collection "What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank," garnered Englander a $30,000 prize. The collection of stories won out over collections by Israeli writer Etgar Keret, as well as Sarah Hall and Kevin Barry.

The prize is funded by the city of Cork in Ireland.

Englander teamed up this year with Jewish-American author Jonathan Safran Foer to publish the "New American Haggadah," a more modern take on the traditional Passover Haggadah.
