Congratulations to Michael Ginsberg, chosen by Warren Adler as the grand prize winner of this year's Warren Adler Short Story Contest. Michael is a childhood friend and neighbor of my mom's, so we were definitely rooting for him as soon as we knew he was a finalist. In keeping with the recent publication of Mr. Adler's latest novel, Funny Boys, the theme for this summer's contest was "humor," and the competition welcomed "humorous stories in all their varied forms." Take a look at Michael's winning story, "Sammy Spumoni: The Italian Matzoh Ball," at the contest site.
