Product 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digitized reference copy of "The Complete Maus" linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman's private notebooks and sketches.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

"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...Mr. Spiegelman is charismatic, and the photographs of him sprinkled throughout are pretty delightful." -"New York Times " "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
