London, Ep. 61

April 5, 2017 — For our 2017 London debut, we teamed with the brillianteurs behind The Good Immigrant for a sold out, immigrant-fueled night of words at Southbank Centre that saw Tahmima Anam outduel Kayo Chingonyi in a American Psycho or American President? finale that went down to the wire, with Anam nailing the final answer, and winning the LDM London, Ep. 61 crown, and literary immortality to go with it.

London, Ep. 10

November 17, 2010 — Before a packed-to-the-gills Concrete crowd (and a ridiculously attractive one, at that), Literary Death Match London's 10th-episode celebration ended with a deliriously raucous (and, we'll admit, somewhat confusing) Mark Zuckerberg/Social Network-style finale that saw champion Sabrina Mahfouz out-"add" Elizabeth Jenner by a total "friend" count of 14-12, winning her the LDM crown.

London, Ep. 4

February 24, 2010 — The Literary Death Matches 4th London episode at The Book Club — alongside the brilliant YARN Festival — was jam-packed with onlookers, levity, talent and enough smart-spun judging quips to make the whole matter a must-see. In the end, finalists Richard Milward (representing Faber) narrowly topped The Book Club Boutique's Salena Godden in a wild game of Springtime Olympic Cadbury Egg Bowling® that saw Milward fill both Jane Austen and W.B. Yeats wide maws with rolled choco-eggs, and thus raise himself to the rare standard of Literary Death Match immortality.
