Mr Accident-Prone

Here is another in Loren Kantor's series of woodcuts of writers. (I mentioned other examples here.)





















I knew quite a lot of the Hemingway life story, but until I read Loren's accompanying article I hadn't realised that the old bastard had such a history of accidents. Extraordinary.

Worth reading for everyone!

He was a liar, too. Claimed he'd slept with Mata Hari - that she was "somewhat heavy in the thigh" - even though she'd died before he left America. Sometimes, of course, a lie is so egregious that it almost becomes a work of art. Hats off.
