Set to Crow

The Tournament of Books is upon us. Today, Kevin Guilfoile and John Warner assume their usual seats in the peanut gallery and start things off with a preview. Guilfoile says, “I finished better than half of this year’s contenders, and if I can inject some early optimism into the proceedings, I personally found this year’s field to be very strong. It might not have as many novels coming in with as much hype as we had in past years, but there’s a lot of parity here.”

The competition proper starts tomorrow, when Morning News editor Rosecrans Baldwin judges a match-up between Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann and Miles from Nowhere by Nami Mun.

Enjoy the action.
