Maus is a graphic novel by American cartoonist Art Spiegelman, serialized from 1980 to 1991. It depicts Spiegelman interviewing his father about his experiences as a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. The work employs postmodern techniques and represents Jews as mice and other Germans and Poles as cats and pigs. Critics have classified Maus as memoir, biography, history, fiction, autobiography, or a mix of genres. In 1992 it became the first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer Prize.
Short review: A funny satire about a group of beauty pageant contestants that crash land on a deserted island. The main theme of the book is finding your real self and not living the life that others place upon you. It is not a deep book. The revelations are not that surprising. But it is a fun book and has a pretty good message. My full review is on my blog at http://bookwi.se/beauty-queens-2/
