Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. 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. Combined for the first time here are Maus I: A Survivor's Tale and Maus II.

Reviews "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 "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 "All too infrequently, a book comes along that's as daring as it is acclaimed. Art Spiegelman's 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 Author Biography Art Spiegelman is a contributing editor and artist for the New Yorker. His drawings and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Maus, and a Guggenheim fellowship. It was also nominated for the National Book Critics Award.
