MAUS
A brutally moving work of art, widely hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever written, Maus recounts the chilling experiences of author Art Spiegelman'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 authorís account of his tortured relationship with his aging father into an astonishing retelling of one of historyís most unspeakable tragedies. It is an unforgettable story of survival and a disarming look at the legacy of trauma.
