'If you are serious about comics or the Holocaust, this book should be on your shelf' San Francisco Book Review

MAUS is widely renowned as one of the greatest pieces of art and literature ever written about the Holocaust. Readers adore it, and it's studied in colleges and universities all over the world.

In MetaMAUS, Art Spiegelman re-enters the world of his Pulitzer-prize winning graphic novel to probe the questions that it often evokes: Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics?

Including never-before-seen sketches, alternate drafts, family photos, diary entries and the transcript of his interviews with his father Vladek as well as an interview with Art himself and a companion DVD, MetaMAUS is as ground-breaking as the masterpiece whose creation it reveals.

The perfect gift, this vital companion is a must-read for any fan of MAUS. ___________________________________________________________________________

'A fascinating meditation on art, writing, and one of the darkest periods in human history' The Atlantic

'MetaMaus will leave even the most ardent admirers of Maus newly in awe of its author's creative courage, ingenuity and stamina' San Francisco Chronicle

Author Choice

I thought that my generation was doing pretty well following Art's example of how to make serious comic books for adults, but this book demonstrates just how pale and paltry our efforts have been; via interviews, documents, photographs and preparatory sketches (and an interactive DVD) it's clear that Art not only created the graphic novel, but that graphic novel may also never be bettered.
