Is it easier to make your way in life if you understand what’s been before? Nadja Spiegelman’s paternal line was well documented: her father, Art Spiegelman, is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus. Nadja’s book I’m Supposed to Protect You from All This is a memoir of the contractive narratives that connect and divide four generations of women in the family of her mother Françoise Mouly, the art editor of The New Yorker. She talks with Abigail Ulman about the searing search for truth amongst the lost and misleading guideposts of memory.
