Description

“Whether a novice or accustomed graphic novel readers, Persepolis is the extraordinary story of a young woman and her account of revolutionary and war-time Iran, written with style and wit.” Carrie

The intelligent and outspoken child of radical Marxists, and the great-grandaughter of Iran’s last emperor, Satrapi bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. This is a beautiful and intimate story full of tragedy and humour – raw, honest and incredibly illuminating.
