In this imaginative and creative tale, author and artist Art Spiegelman uses the graphic novel form to tell his father’s Holocaust story. This graphic novel has captured the attention of so many readers because of both its power for storytelling through art and design, as well as its emphasis on a pivotal moment in history.
This story toggles between both the past and the present. As Spiegelman interviews his father Vladek in 1978 New York City, he learns much about his father’s experience during World War II, including his parents’ liberation from the Nazis. While there is a strong narrative surrounding his father’s past, there is also a compelling story taking place in the present day for Art. On top of the historical narrative, Spiegelman delves into his painful current relationship with his father. The father and son have become estranged following his mother's suicide and his father's subsequent remarriage. Pain, emotion and depth all pervade throughout both the present day and the past narratives.
