Linked: Book Piracy in Peru

Photographer Claudia Alva accompanied Daniel Alarcón on his investigation of the book piracy business in Peru. These are the photos she came back with, of bookstores, and markets, and pirate street peddlers. I couldn’t decide if I should be happy that these people are still reading, or if I should be distraught over the state of the book-world there. The full essay by Alarcón, titled Life Among the Pirates, may also be found online, but it’s 11 pages long and takes a hard, rather sobering look at the book-piracy business in Peru. Read it here.

    That’s not an article. That’s a novela. I did a word count on one page. Multiplied by 11, the thing’s close to 10,000 words.
