A novel by Subcomandante Marcos

Via Marc Cooper: Subcomandante Marcos has teamed up with a famous Mexican mystery writer (Paco Ignacio Taibo II) on a new crime fiction novel entitled, The Uncomfortable Dead. Writing popular fiction doesn't seem particularly revolutionary, but the idea is to provide a glimpse into the Zapatista's key issues. From Amazon:

Taibo's striking collaboration with the charismatic leftist leader known as Subcomandante Marcos is a curious animal, laying forth planks in the Zapatistas' platform for the rights of indigenous peoples against globalization and privatization with subversive, comic panache.
