Two graphic novels tackle the issues of isolation, alienation, and abandoned places

 

Kristen Radtke is the author of two graphic non-fiction books: Imagine Wanting Only This and Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness.

She’s also been the Art Director and Deputy Publisher at the magazine The Believer and a writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Harper’s, Vogue, and The Atlantic.

Kristen sat down with S.W. Conser during the 2021 Portland Book Festival, to talk about her travels through ruined and abandoned communities and the increasingly isolated people she met along the way.
