So...Green Girl was chosen as one of the 16 books in The Morning News/Powell's Tournament of Books where "a ridiculously small and poorly informed group of TMN editors and contributors have chosen 16 of the most cherished, hyped, ignored, and/or enthusiastically praised books of the year to enter into a month-long tournament, NCAA-basketball-madness style, beginning March 7, 2012." This is very fun and bizarre. The winner gets a live rooster.
You can also vote in what they call their zombie poll, where the reader favorite gets an extra life or something. Click here to vote! You just have to click on a radio button. Easy-peasy.
Hopefully this gets more people to read the book?! I guess people write about it and the judges write about reading it so that will all be quite interesting and fun. In the semifinals, Green Girl is up against Jeffrey Eugenides' The Marriage Plot, judged by Edith Zimmerman of The Hairpin! So that's exciting.
