Introduction Hank Magitz was born Henry Thoreau Magitzowski in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Following a scandalous incident involving Eva Peron and a midget, he fled his native country in 1951 and arrived in Brooklyn Heights, where he was befriended by minor Beat poet Greg Corso (legend has it that Corso’s seminal poem “Bomb” was an ode to their sordid friendship). Some months later, Magitz came under the tutelage of Stella Adler and studied both “The Method” and Russian punch-needle embroidery but was asked to leave The Actor’s Studio after a brouhaha with Marlon Brando, which left Magitz with a permanent lisp and Brando believing that he was a Native American. With 46 novels to his credit, all written in his adopted language of Esperanto, Magitz currently resides near the fortress of Rumeli Hisar in Istanbul where he leads Jews for Cheeses, a grassroots movement to decriminalize the exportation of cheese made from mother’s milk.
