ART SPIEGELMAN


Pullitzer Prize-winning artist Art Spiegelman discusses his work with acclaimed novelist Philip Pullman. Best known for the Holocaust narrative, Maus, Spiegelman is also co-founder and editor of the avant-garde comics magazine, RAW, and edits Little Lit, a series of comics anthologies for children. He is currently working on an opera, Drawn to Death about the history of comics, and has recently published a series In the Shadow of No Towers in several papers and magazines. Last year Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass won the Whitbread Book of the Year, the first book for children ever to achieve this feat; the book is part of the famous His Dark Materials fantasy saga, a great success with adults and children, the latest tale of which, Lyra’s Oxford, is just out.
