Recommended for: Everyone

My other literary experience with the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel's Night, was so disturbing and depressing that I could only stand to read it when I was in a warm, sunny place. Maus is far less bleak, (though not at all sparing of the real horrors visited on the Jews of Poland).

Spiegelman has masterfully blended a story almost too big for the human imagination, the Holocaust, with the universal theme of a child struggling to understand his parents. The two volumes of Maus prove that graphic novels can have as much depth as classic literature.
