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 [email protected] 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.”
