A legendary life: Ukranian expat, assassin, prisoner, and Spanish Revolution veteran, who died a factory worker in Mexico City. A beautifully illustrated graphic novel that tells the story of Simón Radowitzky (1891-1956), a gentle soul caught up in a cruel world. Radowitzky appears in a few books, but this is the first English-language book devoted solely to him. His tumultuous life begins with his immigration from Ukraine to Argentina, followed by his assassination of Colonel Falcon (who presided over the slaughter of 100 workers) in 1909. Banished to a penal colony, he escaped, was recaptured and tortured, serving a total of twenty years. Stuart Christie, author of Granny Made Me an Anarchist, pens the introduction.
