TMN Tournament of Books launches

The Morning News’ First Annual Tournament of Books, which “take[s] 16 of the most celebrated books” of 2004 and “pit[s] them against one another in an NCAA-style Battle Royale of literary excellence” has officially launched. Claire Miccio read The Plot Against America and The Bad Boy’s Wife, was underwhelmed by both, but chose the Roth.

So now one of the novels I’ve judged is on the table.
