There's 2 books, part I and part II. I believe the title has Haus in it. Thanks!

It's very good. It won a Pullitzer.

And it's not only about the Holocaust; it's also about how a Holocaust survivor and his son relate to each other 40 years after the fact when one has lived through Aushcwitz and the other has not.

It is great. And years ago, I loaned my copy of Maus to a neighbor who taught an Engish class at a small college. He liked it so much that he bought his own and then added it to his reading list of books students could select from for their book reports for his class.

He also did a book about 9/11 called "In The Shadow Of No Towers". I haven't read it yet but my wife said it's great. She got a signed copy when he did a book tour.

Maus is one of the classics. I was actually reading it last week, probably for the 6th or 7th time.

So this is a comic book? I was just at the borders and was looking at this based on your suggestions.

Definately going to pick this one up i think.

Now that's the kinda accolade that means even more than a Pulitzer Prize.

In that case may I recommend Zack's An Underground Education, which has great tidbits that are anywhere from two paragraphs to five pages long. Really customizable content depending on how long you will be sitting there.

Underneath is a Milk & Cheese anthology.

I have a Milk and Cheese anthology in my toilet stack as well!
The long time favorite before Maus was the World of Warcraft companion book.
