Andrew W.K. Joins Tournament of Books’ Panel of Judges

Tob_2010.jpgA rock star, a culinary memoirist, and a music and literary blogger will help judge The Morning News’ annual Tournament of Books this year.

Performer Andrew W.K. (here), Julie Powell (“Julie & Julia“) and David Gutowski (Largehearted Boy) will all judge the annual competition. This year’s round-robin bracket will pit literary titles against each other. The list includes: “The Year of the Flood” by Margaret Atwood; Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel; “Lowboy” by John Wray and NBA winner, “Let the Great World Spin” by Colum McCann.

Here’s more from the announcement: “You can follow along as each contender is passed from reader to reader and judgments are handed down, sometimes passionately, sometimes haphazardly (and sometimes, in the case of Dale Peck in 2006, not at all). We have had judges who admitted they didn’t finish their books. We’ve had Rooster winners who came back as judges the next year, on the condition that we commission for them an aggressive T-shirt. And yes, we’ve had judges who flipped coins. So has the National Book Award—but the National Book Award won’t tell you that.”

Listing Summer Reading Lists

seigeof.jpgEven though half the country has been buried under clouds, rainstorms, and generally gloomy weather patterns, blogger David Gutowski has created a gigantic list of more than 100 summer reading lists like good luck charms to bring back summer.

Gutowski runs the literary music blog, Largehearted Boy, specializing in this kind of strategic aggregation. The excellent collection includes such specialized lists as Summer Reads for Advertising Agency Executives and Geeky Summer Reading for the Two-to-Fives.

Here’s an excerpt from the Independent‘s Blockbuster Reborn list: “In [J.G. Farrell's] character-rich, adventure-stuffed, satire-strewn sagas, he cheerfully kicked down the walls between ‘literary’ and ‘genre’ fiction. Behind Farrell’s return to favour lies a hunger, among readers of fiction and certainly among anxious publishers, for the blockbuster with brains.”
