Just finished reading Maus by Art Spiegelman for this month’s book club.
It’s real journey – a moving tale of his mother and father’s survival of the holocaust told through the medium of a graphic novel. It’s no mean feat to tell a credible and emotional tale in this format.
what I really liked was the metaphoricl characters – the jews are mice, the nazis are cats and the americans are dogs. Don’t ask me why the brits are fish.
It comes highly recommended.
