Maus approaches the unspeakable through the diminutive. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), shocks us out of any lingering sense of familiarity. Maus is a haunting tale within a tale. Vladek's harrowing story of survival is woven into the author's account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. This astonishing retelling of our century's grisliest news is a story of survival, not only of Vladek but of the children who survive even the survivors. Maus studies the bloody pawprints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.

Author Biography The Pulitzer prize winning author of "Maus" and "Maus II", Art Spiegelman was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and grew up in Rego Park, New York. He is also the co-founder/editor of RAW, the acclaimed magazine of avant-garde comix and graphics and the illustrator of the lost classic "The Wild Party" by Joseph Moncure March. Spiegelmans work has been published in more than sixteen languages and has appeared in "The New York Times, Village Voice, " and "Playboy", among others. He has been a contributing editor and cover artist for "The New Yorker" since 1992. Spiegelman attended the High School Review "A loving documentary and brutal fable, a mix of compassion and stoicism [that] sums up the experience of the Holocaust with as much power and as little pretension as any other work I can think of."-The New Republic "A quiet triumph, moving and simple-impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics."-The Washington Post "Spiegelman has turned the exuberant fantasy of comics inside out by giving us the most incredible fantasy in comics history: something that actually occurred.... The central relationship is not that of cat and mouse, but that of Art and Vladek. Maus is terrifying not for its brutality, but for its tenderness and guilt."-The New Yorker "All too infrequently, a book comes along thats as daring as it is acclaimed. Art Spiegelmans Maus is just such a book."-Esquire "An epic story told in tiny pictures."-The New York Times "A remarkable work, awesome in its conception and execution... at one and the same time a novel, a documentary, a memoir, and a comic book. Brilliant, just brilliant."-Jules Feffer Details ISBN0679406417 Author Art Spiegelman Short Title COMP MAUS Pages 296 Publisher Pantheon Books Language English ISBN-10 0679406417 ISBN-13 9780679406419 Media Book Format Hardcover DEWEY B Year 1996 Publication Date 1996-11-30 Imprint Pantheon Books Inc Place of Publication New York Country of Publication United States Illustrations illustrations Audience Age 15-18 Residence New York City, NY, US Series Pantheon Books Dimensions165mm x 28mm x 234mm We've got this At The Nile, if you're looking for it, we've got it.
