Author Photo Smackdown: Our First Ever Contest Winner!

Posted By on Wed, Jul 7, 2010 at 12:39 PM

Last issue we debuted the highly questionable Author Photo Smackdown, in which we look at the semiotics of author portraiture and tell you exactly what the photo says (exactly... it's kind of science we've perfected). We also invited readers to guess the identities of the serious-faced writers, offering a prize to a randomly selected correct answer. Well, holy crap, someone got it right. "Sandi" correctly identified CONTESTANT A as Sofi Oksanen, and CONTESTANT B as Karen Russel. Yay!


Congratulations, Sandi, you have won a copy of Ben Greenman's great new book, What He's Poised to Do. Take a crack at this week's contest over here. Good luck!
