Description
 
At last! Here is the definitive edition of the book acclaimed as the most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust (Wall Street Journal) and the first masterpiece in comic book history (The New Yorker). It now appears as it was originally envisioned by the author:The Complete Maus. It is the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitlers Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his fathers story.Mausapproaches 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 and succeeds in drawing us closer to the bleak heart of the Holocaust (The New York Times). Mausis a haunting tale within a tale. Vladeks harrowing story of survival is woven into the authors 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 centurys grisliest news is a story of survival, not only of Vladek but of the children who survive even the survivors.Mausstudies the bloody pawprints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.
