Simple yet profound

on 2/9/2007

It's a book definitely worth reading. I've read it many years ago, but at the same time, I've reread it recently. There's the simple plotline that is in the book as well as a plot that can be analyzed further. Read More

Author Info
Art Spiegelman
Art (Avarham) Spiegelman was born in Sweden, but his parents immigrated to the U.S. when he was 3 years old. He studied art both in high school and at Harpur College, from which he graduated in 1968. His first job was designing novelty cards for Tip Top Chewing Gum, and he began to contribute comics to various underground publications, using the pseudonym Al Flooglebuckle. With his wife Fancoise Mouly, he co-founded "Raw", an avant-garde comic journal. His first "comic-book novel," "Maus" (1986), which was inspired by his father's Holocaust experiences, was an overwhelming success. He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992.
Praise
"Art Spiegelman doesn't draw comics. It might be clever to say he draws tragics, but that would be inaccurate too. Like its predecessor, "Maus: A Survivor's Tale II. And Here My Troubles Began" is a serious form of pictorial literature, sustaining and even intensifying the power of the first volume. It resists defining labels."
