‘Maus’ Is Now the #1 Best Selling Book on Amazon After Outrage Over Tennessee School District Removing It from Curriculum

Maus, Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel, hit the top of Amazon’s bestseller lists in multiple categories after a Tennessee school district removed it from their curriculum. The unanimous vote by the McMinn County, Tennessee School Board to remove Spiegelman’s b00k from their 8th-grade curriculum drew outrage. Transcripts of the school board meeting showed the members discussing their objections to language within the book like “God damn” and a depiction of a nude woman.
