Bryna Kranzler is the author of The Accidental Anarchist, the true story of Jacob Marateck, an Orthodox Jew who was sentenced to death three times in the early 1900s in Russia – and lived to tell about it.

This award-winning historical biography is based on the diaries that Marateck began keeping in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese War. That was when he decided to overthrow the Czar . . .

In a unique twist of fate, Jacob Marateck was the author, Bryna’s, grandfather, and she was named for the young girl who had saved his life.
