Cravan befriended Jack Johnson, the exiled black American boxer, in Paris- in 1916 they staged a fight to pay for Cravans passage out of war-torn Europe. In New York, Cravan fell in love with the poet Mina Loy- they fled to Mexico and were married. Soon after, Cravan was lost at sea in a hurricane and presumed dead. In letters between Jack and Mina thirty years after Cravans disappearance, Shadow-Box sketches this expansive tale in the era of tremendous social, artistic, and political upheaval before and during World War I.
