Tournament of Books: Krauss v. Bergen

Choire Sicha picks Nicole Krauss’ The History of Love over Dave Bergen’s The Time In-Between in the first match of this year’s Tournament of Books. Kevin Guilfoile observes that Krauss’ win

sets up a possible War of the Proses in round two between her and her husband Jonathan “Mad About” Safran Foer…. Remember last year when everyone got their hair in knots because the finalists for the National Book Award all lived in New York? Just think how pissed America would have been if all five of them slept in the same bed?
