Another tournament of books.

For those who like this sort of thing, Time Out New York has a tournament going in which readers vote on "which book is most essential to life – and cocktail conversation – in New York City."  Being a bumpkin who has lived in Maine his whole life, I’m not that great a judge.  And no commentary?

I tell you what though, if Auster’s New York Trilogy loses out to The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, I’ll eat my red notebook.  (And shouldn’t the graphic novelization of City of Glass get its own shot at the title?)  (via)
