El Turista Revolucionario

Arturo Desimone was born in 1984 on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba. He was raised by parents of immigrant origins — an Argentinean father, a Russian-Polish mother. At the age of 20 he emigrated to the Netherlands but after six years left to lead a nomadic way of life better suited to writing and making drawings.  His short fiction and poems have been in Big Bridge, and The Acentos Review and Hinchas de Poesia. The Argentine writer Laura Ramos recently wrote a column about him in Clarin called El Turista Revolucionario.
