Hark! A Vagrant is an uproarious romp through history and literature seen through the sharp, contemporary lens of New Yorker cartoonist and comics-sensation Kate Beaton. No era or tome emerges unscathed as Beaton rightly skewers the Western world's revolutionaries, leaders, sycophants, and suffragists while equally honing her wit on the hapless heroes, heroines, and villains of the best-loved fiction.
I love Beaton's web comic, and was very eager to read her book. She did not leave me disappointed. In her book, Beaton tackles Nancy Drew stories, famous book covers, and the Canadian Government, and many other things. She is brilliant and witty.
I give this a 4 out of 5 stars.
