Sexo y violencia--now available again in paperback!

Photographer Lourdes Grobet's penentrating study of Mexican professional wrestling culture features more than 500 photographs of luchadores like Blue Demon, Santo, The Witch, Adorable Rub', El Solitario and Hurricane Ramirez, as well as pictures of their families, friends and fans--onstage, backstage and even at home. Lucha Libre also includes photographs of stickers, flyers, postcards, stills from Mexi-lucha-cinema, interviews with the wrestlers, essays and much, much more! In this comprehensive 20-year study, Grobet has put together the definitive look at Mexico's masked superstars. Viva la Lucha Libre! Now in its second printing.
