Review quote

"The most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust." --The Wall Street Journal "Maus is a book that cannot be put down, truly, even to sleep. When two of the mice speak of love, you are moved, when they suffer, you weep. Slowly through this little tale comprised of suffering, humor and life's daily trials, you are captivated by the language of an old Eastern European family, and drawn into the gentle and mesmerizing rhythm, and when you finish Maus, you are unhappy to have left that magical world." --Umberto Eco "In part two of Maus, Art Spiegelman finishes his masterpiece . . . You can't help witnessing--even feeling--the act of private pain being transformed into lasting truth." --The Boston Globe "One of the most poweful and original memoirs to come along in recent years . . . An epic story told in tiny pictures." --The New York Timesshow more
