First published in 1986, Art Spiegelman’s Maus, a comic-book chronicle of his parents’ experience during the Holocaust, was hailed by Jules Feiffer as “a remarkable work, awesome in its conception and execution . . . at one and the same time a novel, a documentary, a memoir and a comic book. Brilliant. Just brilliant.” To mark the book’s twenty-fifth anniversary, Spiegelman now publishes MetaMaus—“my notebooks, my sketches, rough drafts, interviews, transcripts, photos [and] historical references made into a work that can sit next to Maus.” The book has been edited by Hillary Chute.
