Saturday of Book Reviewing – The Complete Maus

Recently, I read Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel Maus. Written about his father, Vladek’s, experiences during the Holocaust. It’s been on my to read list for awhile and given the resurgence of f**king Nazis in America right now, this seemed a punctual read.
