Congratulations to Matthew Salesses—a panel of the ghosts of Lucille Clifton all agreed that his one word answer, “better,” best fit the question about how a person should be. Thanks to everyone who entered and check back next week for a new giveaway, why not. **END UPDATE**

How Should A Person Be? Use one word to answer that question in the comments below (and make sure you leave a way to contact you), and I’ll send you a hardcover edition of Sheila Heti’s awesome new book. This contest will be judged tomorrow evening by Lucille Clifton’s ghost.

Check out my interview with Sheila over at Bomb Magazine.
