    Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman reenters Maus, the unforgettable biography of his father’s life during and after the Holocaust. Spiegelman delves into the book that consumed him for 13 years to discuss his survivor parents, the oxymoron of picturing life in a death camp, racist imagery and his beloved medium of comics. MetaMaus brilliantly deconstructs one of the most important works of art and literature of the 20th century, while providing insight into Spiegelman’s creative process.

    Art Spiegelman is an award-winning author and illustrator of more than 10 books, most notably Maus, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1992. His comics are best known for their shifting graphic styles, formal complexity and often controversial content. His work has been published in numerous periodicals, including The New Yorker, where he was a staff artist and writer from 1993-2003.

    “Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics? Spiegelman answers intelligently, articulately, and with a high degree of psychological and aesthetic penetration.” Booklist, starred review

    “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
