Tournament of Books 2011 Update

Round 1 of the Tournament of Books started last week and continues through this week.  One upset so far.  The summary to date:

Freedom vs. Kapitol -- Freedom, a favorite and 2010 heavyweight won .

Room vs. Bad Marie -- Room, another fan and critic favorite won decisively.  Room takes on Freedom in the next round.  Expect a titanic clash.

Savages vs. Finkler Question -- Finkler (the Man Booker winner) won.

A Visit from the Goon Squad vs. Skippy Dies -- close, but Goon Squad won and next faces off with Finkler

The winner of today's match up, Lord of Misrule vs. Nox, was announced this morning.  In a dramatic upset, Nox won.

Three match ups left this week to close out the opening round.  My calls for those are So Much For That beats out Next; Super Sad True Love Story defeats Model Home and even odds on Lemon Cake versus Bloodroot.
