Journal Entry 1 by wingcontowing from Lisboa (city), Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Sunday, December 07, 2014

"From the best–selling author of Persepolis comes this gloriously entertaining and enlightening look into the sex lives of Iranian women. Embroideries gathers together Marjane’s tough–talking grandmother, stoic mother, glamorous and eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbors for an afternoon of tea drinking and talking. Naturally, the subject turns to love, sex and the vagaries of men."

I loved this fun little graphic novel. It's not as amazing as Persepolis, but it still is very revealing, disclosing the inner thoughts and tricks of women in Iran. The title is great!

Uma bela surpresa, que me alegrou um dia muito atarefado. E chegou mesmo a tempo, senão só o veria depois do Natal. Até parece que a remetente adivinha que eu estava de partida :)

Obrigada continha. És o máximo.

At first, when after lunch the men went to take a nap while the women had to clean the table and the dishes, I thought "It could happen in Portugal". But then, the conversations take a diferrent tone, very related with Irani culture.
As conto said, the title is great and its meaning is only revelead close to the end of the book.
Its a great book, which made me want to know more about the others book of the same authour.

Thanks again, conto.

I had the intention of lending this book to Pequete, because I know she would appreciate it. Now, thanks to "lotaria de Inverno", organised by Arvores, it will travel to her, without further delays.
Anyway, I confess I read it again, with the same pleasure.

I had already read about this book somewhere (GoodReads or a newspaper, I can't remember) and had my eye on it for some time. So what a nice surprise! Thank you irus, I am sure I will love it...

I was expecting more from this book. It was an interesting read about the conversations of a series of Iranian women of different ages covering topics like arranged marriages, cheating husbands, and faking your virginity. But it all sounded too superficial, in a "women against men" way. I missed a few stories where dissimulation and cheating were not the norm, as I am sure there must be at least some. As it is, the book just turned out a caricature, funny at times, but mostly bitter and sad. And now that I think about it, maybe this was exactly what the author had in mind? Maybe I'll find it out, when I get to read Persepolis.

This book has travelled to me from Portugal, through a monthly RABCK of sweet Janeka. Since I have read and I have loved Persepolis, I am more than excited and impatient to lay on my cozy sofa and enjoy this little new book of Marjane Satrapi.
Thank you very much for your kindness, desr Janeka!
