A Pulitzer prize-winning novel about the Holocaust has topped Amazon’s best-seller’s list after a school board in Tennessee banned it.

The graphic novel Maus: A Survivor’s Tale depicts how the author’s parents survived Auschwitz during the Holocaust.

Board members voted in favour of banning the novel because it contained swear words and a naked illustration.

But now The Complete Maus, which includes all volumes, is a best-seller.
