Deemed “too vulgar”, Art Spiegelman’s “Maus” banned in Tennessee

The school board of McMinn County, Tennessee, has decided unanimously of its ten members to ban the graphic novel mouse of Art Spiegelman, which depicts the horrors of the Holocaust. Completed, the work that won a special Pulitzer Prize in 1992 will no longer be part of the school curriculum for 8th graders (ages 13-14). The reason advanced by the ten wise men: eight swear words and a scene of female nudity.
