Barely edging out Slaughterhouse-Five, The Kite Runner is our 2017 Literary March Madness champion. An intensely moving and dramatic novel, it depicts the significance of friendship and family bonds in withstanding harrowing acts of war. Altogether devestating, inspiring, and redemptive, it is a uniquely excellent story. Congratulations to The Kite Runner, and thank you to everyone who participated. Check back next year for a new edition of the Literary March Madness tournament.
