Tournament of Books -- The Final Four

The results are in and brackets filled in for the semi-final round of the Tournament of Books. (See below.) Interestingly enough, three of the four books advancing were number one seeds, books very heavily promoted on release.

The Plot Against America (1) by Philip Roth will face Heir to the Glimmering World (2) by Cynthia Ozick. Both books carry themes of Jewish life with Nazis in the WWII era. The winner of this round will face the winner of the match-up between Cloud Atlas (1 ) by David Mitchell and I Am Charlotte Simmons (1) by Tom Wolfe. Simmons has almost been knocked out twice and Cloud Atlas has received glowing reviews as it's ascended the ranks. Both interesting rounds as we get the final matchup.
