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 is Marnie Heyn, who related, of Daniel Redman’s Torah-style chanting of Walt Whitman’s verse, “My cats and I all listened, rapt and still.”

Heyn gets a copy of Rodger Kamentz’ eclectic study of Rev Nachman and Franz Kafka, Burnt Books. She (and her cats) will no doubt appreciate its spirituality.
