Penguin Guest Blog

Today a post I authored went online at the Penguin Books blog, "Understanding Maus". It's essentially a short piece on the significance of Art Speigelman's absolutely amazing graphic novel Maus and the new companion volume MetaMaus. I won't re-tread the material here, save to say that MetaMaus is a brilliant volume which is both a tool for understanding and a treat for fans and connoisseurs of comics.

  1. I read your guest blog over at Penguin and came here from that. As a writer of alternative historical sci-fi for children, I'm intrigued by your research and the scope of your insight. I look forward to reading more!
