New Escapologist is a magazine for white-collar functionaries with escape on the brain. Drawing from philosophy, literature and original humour; we discuss practical escape routes from the present-day predicaments of demeaning work, status anxiety and urban lethargy. Each issue is a compendium of funny and practical essays on the subject of escape. We promote freedom, anarchy and the absurd. Issue 6 is called Against the Grain. This issue celebrates everything in the vein of our mascot, Jean des Esseintes. Featuring Reggie Chamberlain-King on Leonard Dubkin; Aislínn Clarke on unorthodox funereal practices; poetry to commemorate office life by Graham Fulton; and lavatorial fun with Jon Ransom.
