The Complete MAUS by Art Speigelman

'Maus memorializes Spiegelman's father's experience of the Holocaust - it follows his story, frame by fram, from youth and marriage in pre- war Poland to imprisonment in Auschwitz. The 'survivor's tale' that results is stark and unembellished. One of the cliches about the Holocaust is that you can't imagine it- like nuclear war, its horror outfaces the artistic imagination. Spiegelman disproves that theory'. Independent

'Spiegelman portrays the Nazis as cats, the Jews as mice, the Poles as pigs and the Americans as dogs. They are all terrifyingly human.' The Times
