A slam for novelists
The Morning News picked a bunch of novels and gave them out in pairs for reviewers to read and pick their winner between each pair. Winners move up in rounds to slam against other winners, until one becomes slam champ. Click here for a matchup between Philip Roth’s "The Plot Against America," about Lindberg becoming President of an anti-Semitic U.S. in the forties, vs. T.C. Boyle’s "The Inner Circle," about Dr. Kinsey, the sex researcher.
