Clara Bensen is a writer in Austin, Texas. Her first book No Baggage, a travel memoir, is based on a 2013 Salon.com article entitled “The Craziest OKCupid Date Ever” that was read by more than half a million people. The story of her luggage-less adventure attracted major national and international attention and is being translated into a dozen languages.

She's currently breaking ground on a series of wild social experiments that play with the intersection between madness and society.
