"The Jewish Graphic Novel is a lively, interdisciplinary collection of essays that addresses critically acclaimed works in this subgenre of Jewish literary and artistic culture. Featuring insightful discussions of notable figures in the industry - such as Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, and Joann Sfar - the essays focus on how graphic novels are enlarging the aesthetic possibilities of Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in America and abroad."--Jacket."
