Riassunto: For Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were both highly personal and intensely political. In the Shadow of No Towers, his first new book of comics since the groundbreaking Maus, is a masterful and moving account of the events and aftermath of that tragic day.
Spiegelman and his family bore witness to the attacks in their lower Manhattan neighborhood: his teenage daughter had started school directly below the towers days earlier, and they had lived in the area for years. But the horrors they survived that morning were only the beginning for Spiegelman, as his anguish was quickly displaced by fury at the U.S. government, which shamelessly co-opted the events for its own preconceived agenda.
He responded in the way he knows best. In an oversized, two-page-spread format that echoes the scale of the earliest newspaper comics (which Spiegelman says brought him solace after the attacks), he relates his experience of the national tragedy in drawings and text that convey?with his singular artistry and his characteristic provocation, outrage, and wit?the unfathomable enormity of the event itself, the obvious and insidious effects it had on his life, and the extraordinary, often hidden changes that have been enacted in the name of post-9/11 national security and that have begun to undermine the very foundation of American democracy.
L'autore: Art Spiegelman was born in Stockholm and immigrated to the United States with his parents in his early childhood. He studied cartooning in high school and started drawing professionally at age 16, despite his parents wanting him to become a dentist. In 1998 he won the Pulitzer Prize and a Guggenheim fellowship for his acclaimed Maus books (published by Penguin in 2003 as The Complete Maus). He was the co-founder of Raw, the acclaimed magazine of avant-garde comics and graphics, and editor of Little Lit. His drawings and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries here and abroad. During the 1990s and until 2002, Spiegelman worked as a contributing editor and illustrator for the New Yorker. He lives in New York City.
