Winner of theBernard J. Brommel Award for Biography & Memoir Best Graphic Novels of the Year--Forbes Jewish Book Award Finalist Finalist for the Chautauqua Prize ForPersepolis andLogicomix fans, aNew Yorker cartoonist's page-turning graphic biography of the fascinating Hannah Arendt,the most prominent philosopher of the twentieth century. One of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century and a hero of political thought, the largely unsung and often misunderstood Hannah Arendt is best known for her landmark 1951 book on openness in political life,The Origins of Totalitarianism, which, with its powerful and timely lessons for today, has become newly relevant. She led an extraordinary life. This was a woman who endured Nazi persecution firsthand, survived harrowing "escapes" from country to country in Europe, and befriended such luminaries as Walter Benjamin and Mary McCarthy, in a world inhabited by everyone from Marc Chagall and Marlene Dietrich to Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud. A woman who finally had to give up her unique genius for philosophy, and her love of a very compromised man--the philosopher and Nazi-sympathizer Martin Heidegger--for what she called "love of the world." Compassionate and enlightening, playful and page-turning, New Yorkercartoonist Ken Krimstein's The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendtis a strikingly illustrated portrait of a complex, controversial, deeply flawed, and irrefutably courageous woman whose intelligence and "virulent truth telling" led her to breathtaking insights into the human condition, and whose experience continues to shine a light on how to live as an individual and a public citizen in troubled times.… (mere)

I am getting very fond of graphic biographies - this one is no exception as it gives a quick but still meaningful and thought provoking overview over Arendt's life and some of her key ideas. I really want to read her work now! ( )

Shaggy drawings evoke this global thinker. Fascinating: can’t judge its accuracy. Doesn’t bring the specific magic of comics to its topic. ( )

Hannah Arendt may not be well-known outside of the philosophical world, but she had a huge impact on how we understand the world, including coining a word that we use on a regular basis.

This graphic novel blends nonfiction biography and makes it somewhat fictionalized by writing as if Hannah's speaking to the reader and talking about her life. It touches on her controversial relationship with an apparent Nazi sympathizer. The "three escapes" bring an interesting structure to the story, as she endures Nazi persecution and ultimately moves to the United States. She was friends with many well-known people in the philosophical and arts worlds, and footnotes give the reader a brief biography of each of these folks, again as if Hannah herself was writing them and making comments about their Jewish backgrounds or other snippets of information. An author's note at the end details both Arendt's writings and biographies that a reader could use to learn more about her. This biography gives a nuanced look at a complex woman. ( )

By turns presents panel after panel of thinkers thinking and the sudden escapes demanded by wartime Europe. Arendt deserves a large readership, but I'm not sure the graphic novel treatment will provide the impetus. ( )

I have warmed to the medium of illustrated books. Indeh: A Story of the Apache Wars by Ethan Hawke was excellent. I attended Ken Krimstein's presentation at the American Writers Museum and had the opportunity to meet him. His book is an excellent way to get to know one of the greatest intellects of the 20th century who taught at the University of Chicago in the 1960's. I plan to get to know her life and work more this year (as I did Vaclav Havel's last year). This was a great kickoff to exploring her life and mind. ( )
