Patrick deWitt has won The Morning News’ annual Tournament of Books.

The contest pits novels in a competitive bracket like basketball teams during the NCAA tournament. The two finalists this year were deWitt’s The Sister Brothers and Teju Cole’s Open City. Which was your favorite book?

Back in 2009, we interviewed deWitt about his struggle to publish his first novel, Ablutions. We talked about DIY publicity and how his book survived the restructuring of a major publisher. (Via Electric Literature)
