Art SPIEGELMAN / Translation: ONO Kosei[United States / Japan]


In this classic two-volume graphic novel, cartoonist Art SPIEGELMAN interviews his father, Vladek, about surviving the Holocaust. The artist represents Jews as mice, Germans as cats, and Poles as pigs, skillfully drawing readers into memories of history. The illustrations convey the horrors of disintegrating norms and daily life in the way only visual media can. This definitive edition combines the two volumes with a revised translation.
