Tournament of Books Bracket
There are two slots for “Reader Pick” which have not been filled in and I can’t find the competitors anywhere on the site, so I left them blank. Nonetheless, Let the Great World Spin is going to take it all. I think Year of the Flood deserves to win over Wolf Hall but the reviewer is Andrew WK and for some reason I feel like he’ll prefer Wolf Hall.
Burnt Shadows will upset That Old Cape Magic because everyone knows Cape was Russo’s fifth best book. Lowboy will beat The Help, but I’m most wary of that prediction. Wolf Hall will glide past An Epic Search for Truth and The Anthologist.
Jason Kottke will not hesitate to put Let the Great World Spin ahead of The Lacuna. The guy is not a moron.
Beat my bracket and I’ll send you a TFLN book.
