My predicted winner of Match Three of Round Two: Model Home
Contest Entrants’ Choices: 8% The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake vs. 11% Model Home (of the four novels chosen to advance past the second round in the final bracket section, these were, as in yesterday’s match, third and fourth, respectively)
I am predicting Model Home because I enjoyed it more. Beyond the premise, I am having trouble remembering much of anything from The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Model Home has its flaws (including the “Arrested Development” homage), but it is a more successful fulfillment of its ambition than Lemon Cake.
