Books Square Off and Battle

Move over March Madness. Make room for the Tournament of Books.

But wouldn’t it be possible, exciting, and also fun to take 16 of the
most celebrated books of the year and pit them against one another in
an NCAA-style Battle Royale of literary excellence to see which novel
became The First Annual TMN Tournament of Books Champion? One that could be awarded some badge of high esteem, perhaps called “The Rooster” in honor of David Sedaris’s brother (surely the liveliest character in contemporary literature)?  Yes. This was something we could do.

The event is being hosted by The Morning News and sponsored by Powells. Judges include some of the better known literary bloggers, notes Laila Lalami of Moorish Girl.
