Read from April 20 to May 10, 2012

This was a great book about writing the best graphic biography I have ever read (also the only one, by the way). Of particular interest to me was Spiegelman's coming to a definition of how he sees himself as a Jew. His perceptions by non jews as being Jewish and perceptions by religious jews as being a non Jew. Something I have grappled with throughout my life as a secular Jew. For those interested in comic illustration it is also filled with a lot of information about the technical issues involved which I found quite interesting. It inspired me to re-read the Complete Mouse keeping in mind what I had learned about Spiegelman's process in creating it.
