Art Spiegelman - Unlikeable Narrator

The more of Maus I read, the less I came to like Art Spiegelman. From his unwillingness to help his father fix the leaking drainpipe to his outburst at the end of Maus I, Spiegelman's character came across as unthankful and frustrating. Why did Spiegelman present his character in such a way? Do you think that Spiegelman's character's portrayal adds to the story or detracts from it.
