Spiegelman's 'MetaMaus': The Secrets Behind 'Maus'

Cartoonist Art Spiegelman's epic tale of the Holocaust, the graphic novel Maus, was published 25 years ago — and changed everything about his life. He received a special Pulitzer Prize and became a contributor and cover artist for the New Yorker.

But Maus continued to haunt him.

MetaMaus: A Look Inside A Modern Classic, Maus is the story behind Spiegelman's signature work, complete with interviews, answers to many persistent questions and examples of his early drawings.
