Toni Morrison and Tom Piazza in Final for Tournament of Books

a_mercy-thumb-121xauto-34.jpg“A Mercy” by Toni Morrison and “City of Refuge” by Tom Piazza face off in the conclusion of The Morning News’ annual Tournament of Books.

Seventeen writers weighed in about the final contenders, and the winner is announced in the final post. Earlier, “City” scored a crucial victory in the semifinals as TMN copy editor Liz Entman chose the book over Roberto Bolaño‘s “2666″–which a few writers praised at a recent Granta party.
