Lucha Libro!

Check out this story on a Peruvian writing-contest-cum-spectator sport.  I would attend this, I would participate in it just to have done it--and to have an excuse to wear the mask.  I have no reason to believe that it's a good way to find a novelist who can write a compelling book, but it is a lovely promotional stunt and tickles me nonetheless..

I can't picture an American publisher going for this notion, of course, but perhaps something more brutal, say Death Race for Novelists?  Oh, yeah.

Thanks to Eric for tipping me off to Lucha Libro.
