Author: Art Spiegelman
Genre: Graphic Novels, Non-Fiction
A brutally moving work of art—widely hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever written—Maus recounts the chilling experiences of the author’s father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats.
Maus is a haunting tale within a tale, weaving the author’s account of his tortured relationship with his aging father into an astonishing retelling of one of history’s most unspeakable tragedies. It is an unforgettable story of survival and a disarming look at the legacy of trauma.
This gripping graphic novel is one you won’t be able to put down. I first read it in high school, but I have always returned because it is incredibly addicting. This gives a new perspective on one of the biggest genocides in history, and though it is horrifying, this true story will capture your heart. Don’t hesitate on this book or part two of the story.
I give Maus by Art Spiegelman 5 out of 5 stars.
