Krug's new visual memoir is a mazy and ingenious reckoning with the past . . . She is a tenacious investigator, ferreting out stories from the wispiest hints - a rumor or a mysterious photograph. (The New York Times)

Extraordinary . . . The curious appeal of Krug's graphic memoir is that it never fully loses itself in the act of storytelling but constantly stops to turn over and reassess the means at its disposal. (The Guardian)

Remarkable (The Observer)

Bracing honesty ... the informal feel and arresting candor of a diary (Françoise Mouly New Yorker)

One of the greatest books of the year. (Anne-Dore Krohn, literary critic at RBB Kulturradio)

A spectacular debut . . . enormously clever (Denis Scheck, German literary critic)

Krug probes her family's actions in Nazi Germany, conducting interviews and roaming archives and flea markets. She confronts past and present in a book that's been praised for its invention and bravery. (The Guardian, 'The 50 biggest books of autumn 2018')

Heimat is an astoundingly honest book that conducts a devastating - and irresistible - investigation into one family's struggle with the forces of history. I could not stop reading it and when I was done I could not stop thinking about it. By going so deeply into her family's history, Krug has in some ways written about us all (Sebastian Junger author of The Perfect Storm)
