The 2009 Tournament of Books, hosted by The Morning News and sponsored by Powell's Books, kicks off tomorrow. Roberto Bolano's massive 2666 faces off against Fae Myenne Ng's Steer Toward Rock. The judge is Brockman, the head writer for Powell's Books' Book News blog. As this appears to be Brockman's first time judging in the ToB, he doesn't have a track record. Also, I couldn't find any of his Staff Picks on the Powell's site. Yet, I predict Brockman will vote for 2666.
