April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

26. Maus, A Survivor's Tale I: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman


Title: Maus, A Survivor's Tale I: My Father Bleeds History
Author: Art Spiegelman
Copyright: 1986
Pages: 159
Format: Paperback
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 3-15-08

Maus, A Survivor's Tale is a son's pictorial version of his father's story of survival during WWII. Both haunting and mesmerizing, sometimes funny and touching, this is a story of perseverance and about what the Jews had to suffer through at the hands of the Nazis in WWII Poland. Spiegleman never sugar-coats what his father had to endure in order to keep he and his wife alive. A true work of art.
