Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at [email protected] with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner (the first under the new disqus comment system, where you register to have your say) is Vivian Baron, who reflected, upon reading Jen Spyra’s appreciation of the HBO series Girls, “As a 70 year old woman, I must concur with everything you wrote. I can still remember being 25+ and I was once ms Dunham … maybe I still am in some ways. All we had was the zipless f … a la erica jong.” Fear of f**king!

Ms. Baron gets a copy of Robert Pinsky’s The Life of David: not for David, but for Bathsheba.
