The first installment of the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel acclaimed as “the most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust” (Wall Street Journal) and “the first masterpiece in comic book history” (The New Yorker).
A brutally moving work of art—widely hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever written—Maus recounts the chilling experiences of the author’s father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats.
Maus is a haunting tale within a tale, weaving the author’s account of his tortured relationship with his aging father into an astonishing retelling of one of history’s most unspeakable tragedies. It is an unforgettable story of survival and a disarming look at the legacy of trauma.
‘A remarkable work, awesome in its conception, and execution...at one and the same time a novel, a documentary, a memoir, and a comic book. Brilliant, just brilliant.’
‘ All too infrequently, a book comes along that’s as it is acclaimed. This is such a book.’
‘A quiet triumph, moving and simple - impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics.’
