On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of its first publication, here is the definitive edition of the book acclaimed as ...?the most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust? (Wall Street Journal) and ?the first masterpiece in comic book history? (The New Yorker). The Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus tells the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler?s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his father?s story. Maus approaches the unspeakable through the diminutive. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), shocks us out of any lingering sense of familiarity and succeeds in ?drawing us closer to the bleak heart of the Holocaust? (The New York Times). Maus is a haunting tale within a tale. Vladek?s harrowing story of survival is woven into the author?s account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. This astonishing retelling of our century?s grisliest news is a story of survival, not only of Vladek but of the children who survive even the survivors. Maus studies the bloody pawprints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.

There have been many accounts of the return to the wild of tame animals, but since its original publication in 1960, when the New ...York Times hailed it as a fascinating and remarkable book, Born Free has stood alone in its power to move us. Joy Adamsons story of a lion cub in transition between the captivity in which she is raised and the fearsome wild to which she is returned captures the abilities of both humans and animals to cross the seemingly unbridgeable gap between their radically different worlds. Especially now, at a time when the sanctity of the wild and its inhabitants is increasingly threatened by human development and natural disaster, Adamsons remarkable tale is an idyll, and a model, to return to again and again. Illustrated with the same beautiful, evocative photographs that first enchanted the world forty years ago and updated with a new introduction by George Page, former host and executive editor of the PBS series Nature and author of Inside the Animal Mind, this anniversary edition introduces to a new generation one of the most heartwarming associations between man and animal. Book Details:Format: Paperback Publication Date: 5/16/2000 Pages: 224 Author: Joy Adamson Publisher: Pantheon Dimensions: 6.07in length x 0.67in width x 9.1in height Weight: 12.63oz. Read More
