Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at
firstname.lastname@example.org with his or her mailing address).
This week’s winner is “Dan,” who responded to Etgar Keret’s depiction of a highly civilized—if somewhat unfocused—Tel Aviv demonstration against rising costs of living with this insight: “this is how a demonstration looks like in a real democracy; no violence but also with much deodorant!”
Touche. Dan gets a copy of Sacred Trash, by Adina Hoffman and Peter Cole, which harkens back to a time when achievements were vast, the sun blazing, and the deodorant probably hard to come by.
