What, again?
Posted by: Keir Graff

An unforgivable delay, I know, but the days have been so full of Cormac McCarthy winning awards that one forgets which ones one has recorded and which ones one has not. But: by a score of 15 to 2, the winner of the 2007 Tournament of Books is…*drumroll*…yes, I know it’s inevitable…ladies and gentlemen…please give it up for Cormac McCarthy’s The Road!

After months of resounding and high-flown praise for The Road (my own included), this annotated vote makes the Tournament of Books my new favorite book contest.

DAN CHAON: I’ll go for The Road, at least in part because it includes some excellent recipes.
