Finally, Maus

I’ve joined a local book club in a bid to keep broadening my reading horizons beyond the MA, which is nearly at an end. The club has certainly done that thus far, as well as adding a thoroughly enjoyable social element with like-minded people. Next up on the club reading list is Maus, Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel. These are my first steps into this medium (apart from Jan Cleijne’s Legends of the Tour earlier this year), and I must just add a small apology to my husband, who, as something of a graphic novel and comic aficionado, has been trying to get me to read Maus for years.

It seems I really do need that book club to continue to push my own boundaries.
