Product description


On 11th September 2001, Art Spiegelman raced to the World Trade Center, not knowing if his daughter Nadja was alive or dead. Once she was found safe in her school at the foot of the burning towers he returned home, to meditate on the trauma, and to work on a comic strip. Subversive, iconic, and burningly articulate, In the Shadow of No Towers is New Yorker Art Spiegelman's extraordinary account of 'the hijacking on 9.11 and the subsequent hijacking of those events' by America.

About the Author

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.
