Mitchell Kriegman

A recent transplant to Santa Barbara, our arts contributor Mitchell Kriegman, who this week explores Carl Jung’s long-hidden The Red Book, has been busy writing books himself. His novel Being Audrey Hepburn, about a girl who gets through her crummy life by watching Audrey Hepburn movies, arrives in bookstores in September. A second novel — Things I Can’t Explain, which finds the title character from Clarissa Explains It All (one of Kriegman’s Nickelodeon hits) facing life at 26 — comes out the following summer. Kriegman began his career as a performance artist, performing in the dark in a show titled An Evening of Stories and Tricks You Won’t See Anywhere.
