Description

‘A quiet triumph, moving and simple – impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics’ – Washington PostMaus is the harrowing story of the author’s parents, Vladek Spiegelman and his wife, living in Hitler’s Europe, and then his father dealing with Art Spiegelman’s questions as he explores this past – all drawn with cats and mice. Vividly detailing the unspeakable through the pictorial and diminutive, it blends tragedy and comedy by turns. Against a backdrop of history too large to pacify, Art Spiegelman brilliantly meditates upon the guilt, relief and extraordinary sensation of survival – and how the children of survivors are in their own way affected by the trials of their parents.This is a contemporary classic of immeasurable significance.
