The Jewish Graphic Novel: Critical Approaches” is an anthology with some of Miriam’s work that came out from Rutgers University press.  With a cover painting by Miriam, an interview with Miriam, and the all-new drawn essay, “Jewish Memoir Goes Pow! Zap! Oy!”

“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 increasingly being used in Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in America and abroad.
