Krimstein’s Three Escapes Of Hannah Arendt Out Today

It’s pub day for Ken Krimstein’s wonderful Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt (Bloomsbury Publications)

Some raves:

“The astounding life of a 20th-century original as told by a skillful cartoonist frolicking in long form . . . A compelling performance with great pacing that makes abstruse political theory both intelligible and memorable.” ?Kirkus (Starred Review)

“As Krimstein deftly weaves Arendt’s life and thought, he captures the excitement of the philosophical enterprise in both word and image. . . Both smart and entertaining; highly recommended and not just for graphic novels readers.” ?Starred Review, Library Journal

Mr. Krimstein began contributing his cartoons to The New Yorker in August of 2000.

Hear Mr. Krimstein speaking to Gil Roth on Mr. Roth’s Virtual Memories Show podcast
