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

This week’s winner is Heloisa Pait, who reflected on Liel Leibovitz’ takedown of Roger Waters’ The Wall concert: “The best thing about adolescence is that, soon or later, it ends. I loved Pink Floyd too. Thanks for the article; now I don’t need to see the show.”

Pait gets a copy of Robert Pinsky’s The Life of David, which tells the story of an adolescent boy who became a man.
