Maus: A Survivor’s Tale

From Elaine Pasquali

Title:  Maus: A Survivor’s Tale

Author:  Art Spiegelman

I have reread this book many times and each time it’s riveting. The comic strip format with it’s symbolic, allegorical characters provides an historical narrative of the  holocaust, speaks to Spiegelman’s relationship with his father, and describes his own mental breakdown.  A totally different approach to history and a must-read book.
