    Description***NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD WINNER*** Visually and emotionally rich, "MetaMaus" is as groundbreaking as the masterpiece whose creation it reveals. In the pages of "MetaMaus," Art Spiegelman re-enters the Pulitzer prize-winning "Maus," the modern classic that has altered how we see literature, comics, and the Holocaust ever since it was first published twenty-five years ago. He probes the questions that "Maus" most often evokes--Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics?--and gives us a new and essential work about the creative process. "MetaMaus" includes a bonus DVD-R that provides a digitized reference copy of "The Complete Maus" linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman's private notebooks and sketches. Compelling and intimate, "MetaMaus" is poised to become a classic in its own right.

    Review quote
    "Richly rewarding...The book also serves as a master class on the making and reading of comics...The last frame encapsulates in one single moment the artfulness behind the tale we've just read, and the uneasy combination of filial pride and anger that flowed through "Maus" and flows through "Metamaus "as well." -"The New York Times Book Review " "Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics? Spiegelman answers intelligently, articulately, and with a high degree of psychological and aesthetic penetration." -"Booklist," starred review "As a floor plan for endless exploration, it is the Haus That "Maus" Built...Pick any page and gaze. The windows into these stories about "the "story are to be found at every turn, filling the space with insightful light." -"Washington Post's" Comic Riffs "Art Spiegelman has done more than any other writer of the last few decades to change our understanding of the way stories about the Holocaust can be written..."MetaMaus "is a profound meditation on the meaning of sources and the uses we make of them." -"The New Republic" "A fascinating meditation on art, writing, and one of the darkest periods in human history." -"The Atlantic " "Striking...a treasure trove of material." -Shelf Awareness "Fascinating and often provocative...the accompanying DVD will satisfy the insatiable appetite." -"Kirkus" "Sure to breed excitement." -"Library Journal" "Mr. Spiegelman's new book, "MetaMaus," functions as a kind of artist's scrapbook, chapbook, photo album and storage trunk. Packed with more extras than a new 'Transformers' DVD, it's a look back at "Maus" and its complicated composition and reception...Mr. Spiegelman is a witty and testy raconteur, and Ms. Chute knows a good deal about comics and she pulls good things from him...Spiegelman is charismatic, and the photographs of him sprinkled throughout are pretty delightful." -"New York Times " "Few books have made as much impact as "Mau
