Art Spiegelman: Complete Maus: A Survivor’s Tale

(Graphic memoir, 295 pp. Vol I, 1986; Vol II, 1991)

This Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir, incongruously told in the form of a comic strip, is a haunting story within a story, of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler’s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his aging father’s history.
