Slideshow: Book Piracy in Peru


Photographer Claudia Alva accompanied Daniel Alarcón on his investigation into the book piracy business in Peru. Some more photos from this selection were published on the Guardian website.

Daniel Alarcón’s piece, ‘Life Among the Pirates’, is published in Granta 109: Work, which is out now (you can buy the issue here). You can also read the piece online.

    Daniel the piece was really great. Got the idea of starting a pirate press in Italy: as an act of love for literature in this country where culture is more and more neglected.
