Clay Fernald has a short interview with Miriam in this week’s Dig Boston, where he asks, “Were you compelled to write and draw these stories of your life for historical, personal or artistic reasons?”

“The stories my mother told me about the war, about our family and our survival were like a daily running narrative in my mind through my life. An uninvited, unwanted presence. They begged to be told. But I am not a writer (as I don’t have one language good enough to write a book with) and also I thought, “Who needs another Holocaust novel”? Then, when I discovered the comics for myself I knew that this way, with drawing and few words I can express myself.”

A petite reminder to New Yorkers: Miriam will be in NYC at Book Culture on Thursday night.
