At last, a book award I like

The Morning News launches The Tournament of Books (inhouse slogan: “See bright young things crushed!”) Some of my favourite lit bloggers are judging this one. The winner will get The Rooster, the lit world’s version of the Oscar, with a twist:

“We have looked into shipping a live rooster to the winner. We are still looking.”

If they want a red rooster, come to the Babu’s new house. There’s a horrible specimen down the road that goes Cucuru…at 5 am and delivers the final “cu” about fifteen minutes later. Exactly five minutes after he finishes his morning raga, the local tomcats strike up the band.

Wanted, by the Babu, chicken soup and sleep. Approximately in that order.
