What Do You Get When You Cross Kim Kardashian With Philosopher Søren Kierkegaard?

If you’re unfamiliar, there’s an excellent Twitter account out there mashing up Kim Kardashian quotes with quotes from philosopher Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855).


The account, @KimKierkegaard, has achieved what every parody Twitter account dreams of – a book deal. Entitled My Beautiful Despair: The Philosophy of Kim Kierkegaardashianthe book is available for preorder, with a release date set for July 31, 2018. The London Evening Standard has described it as “the ultimate meeting of the sublime with the ridiculous,” while the Barnes and Noble blurb praises the book for “blending the existential philosophy of Kierkegaard with the superficial musings of Kim Kardashian West”.


The Twitter account has been praised in The New YorkerThe Washington PostThe New York TimesFinancial TimesThe EconomistNew York, Buzzfeed, amongst others, and currently has slightly over a quarter of a million Twitter followers.


In support of this hilarious Twitter and its upcoming book release, here are some of my favorite tweets from the love child of the most famous Kardashian and the famed philosopher.



















So there you have it. If you didn’t know about this Twitter account, now you do. If you love existential philosophy and politely making fun of the media mogul, this book is for you.
