The long and at times surreal saga surrounding the cancer treatment of President Hugo Chavez has many Venezuelan writers and intellectuals likening the nation's drama to a telenovela. Venezuela has long produced soap operas, and some say no one could have imagined a more bizarre plot than the one unfolding in the more than seven weeks since Chavez traveled to Cuba for his operation and disappeared from public view.
