March Madness, Type Books Style

If you walk by Type Books on Queen Street West this month, you’ll notice a March Madness–style bracket hanging in their window. However, these booksellers (and basketball fans) aren’t zealously following the annual NCAA basketball tournament. Instead, they’re trying to determine the best novel published in the past decade.
Sixty-four novels are outfitted in four divisions: Canadian literature, American literature, British literature, and world literature, with each title going head-to-head in true March Madness style. Eventually, the sixty-four titles will be reduced to one, which will be the “Books of the Decade” champion.
