The Rooster Crows Again. . .

This week is the start of one of my favourite book battles - The Morning News Tournament of Books - where guest judges weigh in on two books and advance their favourite on to the next round. Sixteen books are up for the challenge which starts in earnest tomorrow with Jonathan Franzen's Freedom up against Teddy Wayne's Kapitoil.  What makes this contest so much fun is the smart and witty commentary.  Opening remarks are up on the website here and you can also see the full list of book in contention.
