Missing in Mexico

Ambrose Bierce, Hart Crane, Arthur Cravan, B. Traven / Ret Marut (or whatever his name was), – it seems that Mexico is the perfect place for authors who want to vanish without traces.

    Arthur Cravan (also known as Fabian Avenarius Lloyd, Edouard Achinard, Isaac Cravan, Dorian Hope, Sebastian Hope, B. Holland, Robert Miradique, Marie Lowitska, W. Cooper, James M. Hayes and Eva, Dowager Empress of Iceland) is one of my favourite human beings. A truly Dada life.

      When I first read about him, I was not sure if he had really existed – all about him sounds too…dadaistic. But it seems there really was an Arthur Cravan. What an interesting life!
