Raving about Kim Severson’s delish new memoir, Spoon Fed, last week, I offered a free copy to a lucky person who would write me an e-mail and explain why they wanted to read it. I got a lot of responses but had to pick one. Couldn’t pick just one, so I’m picking two:
• Alan Zuschlag of Amissville, Virginia (yes, there’s a town called Amissville! Where something always feels a little …?)
• M’Lisa Kelley of Berkeley, Calif.
It was totally subjective, the most unfair contest in the world. Thanks to everyone who wrote in. Turns out, Kim needs no help whatsoever promoting Spoon Fed — the book is everywhere and is going to be a big hit. Nevertheless, it’s good to put some book karma out there.
