What to Read After... The Snowman 09/12/19
Combined for the first time here are Maus I: My Father Bleeds History and Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began - the complete story of Vladek Spiegelman and his wife, living and surviving in Hitler's Europe.
By addressing the horror of the Holocaust through cartoons, the author captures the everyday reality of fear and is able to explore the guilt, relief and extraordinary sensation of survival – and how the children of survivors are in their own way affected by the trials of their parents.
Maus takes away none of the pathos and complex emotion and heartache of the original source material.
