Have you been following along with the Tournament of Books proceedings? Today’s matchup pits The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters against A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall by Will Chancellor.
Having read neither of these books yet, I was interested to see the descriptions of each and the commentary on why the winner was ultimately selected.
