Tournament of Books finals  APR 05 2010

The judges have spoken in a close race between The Lacuna and Wolf Hall. My vote went to Wolf Hall:

All three of the Tournament books I read (including Let the Great World Spin and The Lacuna) were more or less historical fiction, but Wolf Hall was the one that most put the reader into the action; it read very much like nonfiction. For that and Hilary Mantel's graceful and beautiful and just flat-out great prose, Wolf Hall gets my vote for the Golden Rooster. (There is a Golden Rooster, right?)
