This book contains two works, with Si Lewen's wordless novel, Parade, on one side of the accordion-fold and a monograph edited by Art Spiegelman with accompanying essay on the other. Parade depicts the horrors of endless war through the eyes of a Polish Jewish painter born right after World War 1 and includes outakes placed appropriately throughout. Spiegelman's essay chronicles Si Lewen's life, exploring Lewen's wish to see paintings hung so close together "so they could talk to one another."
