Here is the whole Jungian corpus in a nutshell, spelled out brilliantly in the form of original stories, fables, myths and parables. Each is beautifully written, intriguing, commanding one's full attention. Spiegelman is highly imaginative, a truly creative psychologist.
The book deals symbolically with the process of individuation, the growth to be Oneself, the movement Godward. As such, it is the story of the great Work, the noblest story and Work of them all, told with simplicity and deep sincerity.
