The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt: A Tyranny of Truth
A brilliant and deeply moving graphic memoir about the life and thoughts of the philosopher Hannah Arendt—who by fate was forced reinvent her life several times—surviving harrowing escapes from country to country: from Germany and France and to the United States. Krimstein explains Arendt’s ideas with clarity and wit, and those ideas still resonate. That alone is quite a feat! This is a story of a life as relevant now as it was then.
