Today The Morning News announced the roster for the annual Tournament of Books–a round robin competition that pits books against books every March. We’ve listed the complete roster of books below.
A panel of judges will compare these books against each other, eliminating one book each round until there is a winning book. Last year, Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall topped the list.
Here’s more about the contest: “There will be surprises and controversies, upsets and kerfuffles. As usual, we’ll have our color commentators on hand to discuss the decisions, and our Rooster statistician will return to provide analysis and predictions. Then there’s you, the reader. Sometimes you’ll agree with the decisions, sometimes you won’t, and in both cases we hope you’ll voice your opinion in the discussion—which has become, as Salon critic Laura Miller put it last year, ‘a rare pocket of civility and informed intelligence.’”
