Nadja Spiegelman, a writer and creator of three graphic novels, is the daughter of Art Spiegelman, the creator of Maus, and Françoise Mouly, art editor at The New Yorker. In her memoir, I'm Supposed to Protect You From All This, she details her complex relationship with her mother, which became increasingly turbulent during her adolescence.
