Issue Four now available

Issue Four of New Escapologist is now available to order at the shop.

You may also notice the revised subscription package. New subscribers will receive Issues 5-8 for the limited-offer price of £20. If your subscription ends with Issue Four and you’ve enjoyed the ride so far, now is a good time to renew.

Issue Four is the ‘Bad Faith’ issue. It explores Jean-Paul Sartre’s concept of ‘Mauvaise Foi’ and George Orwell’s claim that “we don’t do the things we want to do […] there’s time for everything except the things worth doing”. We also have great articles on travel, time, economics and Flaubert. 80 pages of finely-typeset wisdom.

Thank you again for your loyal patronage. I hope you enjoy our latest edition.


Robert Wringham is a humorist and the editor-in-chief of New Escapologist.
