May 31 (at Miranda at Ace Hotel)

London, we're back! Literary Death Match returns to Miranda at Ace Hotel London to celebrate the launch of our founder Adrian Todd Zuniga's debut novel (Collision Theory), by putting on a night of epically hiliarious, literary proportions that will have you tap-dancing on your chair (or, more likely, applauding). Preorder now!

What is Literary Death Match? Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in an edge-of-your-seat read-off critiqued by three celebrity judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion.
