Here is a new thing we are going to be doing: Comment of the week! Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book that is thematically appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “Michael,” who wrote, in response to the news that contributing editor Joshua Cohen’s novel Witz came closest to stopping a bullet, “Neither reader nor bullet can make it through Witz.”

“Michael” will receive a copy of David Mamet’s The Wicked Son, though he might also enjoy Mamet’s Three Uses of the Knife.
