Big-Boned (and Thick-Skinned)

Comment of the Week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine')

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

This week’s winner is “User,” who was provoked by Liel Leibovitz’s diatribe against Dirty Dancing (and his argument that it is an indelible emanation of the Reagan years) to suppose, “Liel is a troubled mind, and lost soul trapped in an overweight body that reflects his self-hatred. There is no air trafickers’ strike that can save this one.”

So, you’re a friend of Liel’s? (He’s a friend of yours; he nominated you this week.) Clearly you have an appreciation of the Jewish body, so you get Melvin Konner’s book of the same name.
