Re: RARA-AVIS: What about B.Traven?

Date: 18 Nov 2002

Richard, are you sure B. Traven wasn't writing about being a writer?

"What you get is advances and advances. Just enough to get drunk and get a dame under your legs. Sometimes there is just a bit left to buy a shirt, a pair of pants, or new clogs. You never get enough to buy you a complete outfit. You see, if you look like a respectable citizen, you might get some ideas into your head and walk off and become alive again. Nothing doing. Get trick now? As long as you haven't got money, and as long as you are in rags, you cannot get away here. You stay dead."
