The Complete Maus

by Art Spiegelman
£16.99   paperback  Penguin (2003)

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman Combined for the first time here are Maus I: A Survivor's Tale and Maus II - the complete story of Vladek Spiegelman and his wife, living and surviving in Hitler's Europe.
By addressing the horror of the Holocaust through cartoons, the author captures the everyday reality of fear and is able to explore 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.
A contemporary classic of immeasurable significance.

"Maus memoralizes Spiegelman's father's experience of the Holocaust - it follows his story, frame by frame, from youth and marriage in pre-war Poland to imprisonment in Auschwitz. The 'survivor's tale' that results is stark and unembellished. One of the cliches about the Holocaust is that you can't imagine it - like nuclear war its horror outfaces the artistic imagination. Spiegelman disproves that theory."
