Try to Top the “Most Laudatory Quote Ever Attached to a Book”

endland.jpg.pngToday The Guardian teased a blurb written by Nicole Krauss for David Grossman‘s upcoming novel, To the End of the Land–calling it “possibly the most laudatory quote ever attached to a book.”

Here’s an excerpt from the blurb: “Grossman may be the most gifted writer I’ve ever read; gifted not just because of his imagination, his energy, his originality, but because he has access to the unutterable, because he can look inside a person and discover the unique essence of her humanity.”

In the comments section, the Guardian urged reader to top the quote with even more flowery language. However, readers must write the blurb for Dan Brown‘s bestseller, The Da Vinci Code. Follow this link to join the summer fun.
