Round four of the 2021 Tournament of books has now concluded with "Interior Chinatown" by Charles Yu defeating Luster by Raven Leilani. I did not get around to reading Luster but I did read and enjoy Interior Chinatown, though not as much as other readers.
The judge for this round was Nishant Batsha.
