Tournament of Books: Krauss v. Lipsyte

Brigid Hughes of A Public Space kicks off the third round of the Tournament of Books by deciding between Nicole Krauss’ The History of Love and Sam Lipsyte’s Home Land.

(When I first posted this tournament update, I called Lipsyte’s book Saturday — not exactly a favorite; scroll down — rather than Home Land, which shows you what kind of day it is here in cubicleville. The explosions across the street are pretty great, though, especially now that they’re using an airhorn rather than a tin whistle to warn people in the vicinity that a boom is coming. Thanks to Mark for alerting me to the error.)
