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digitized reference copy of "The Complete Maus" linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman's private notebooks and sketches.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