Product Overview

Visually and emotionally rich, "MetaMaus" is as groundbreaking as the masterpiece whose creation it reveals.
In the pages of "MetaMaus," Art Spiegelman re-enters the Pulitzer prize-winning "Maus," the modern classic that has altered how we see literature, comics, and the Holocaust ever since it was first published twenty-five years ago.
He probes the questions that "Maus" most often evokes--Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics?--and gives us a new and essential work about the creative process.
"MetaMaus" includes a bonus DVD that provides a digitized reference copy of "The Complete Maus" linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman''s private notebooks and sketches.
Compelling and intimate, "MetaMaus" is poised to become a classic in its own right.

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.
From the Publisher
Annotation Maybe he was just getting tired of answering the same questions, or maybe he really did want to investigate the significance of his ground-breaking, career-defining, Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel MAUS. But regardless the impulse, with META MAUS, an informative and self-reflective work, Spiegelman offers many answer to many questions and provides deep insight into his own process and the bigger cultural narratives within which he was working-- both in terms of the history of comics as a medium and in terms of the history of genocide, oppression, and immigration of Jewish people. META MAUS looks at the specifics of Spiegelman's masterpiece, but it also offers thought-provoking commentary on the broad topic of creativity and cultural production. Accompanied by two DVDs--one that includes a digital version of MAUS with hyperlinks to be used for reference while reading META, and one that contains a wealth of interviews, documents, and critical discussion.
