The Complete Persepolis
4 journalers for this copy...
Here, in one volume: Marjane Satrapi's best-selling, internationally acclaimed memoir-in-comic-strips.
Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up.
Edgy, searingly observant, and candid, often heartbreaking but threaded throughout with raw humor and hard-earned wisdom--Persepolis is a stunning work from one of the most highly regarded, singularly talented graphic artists at work today.

This graphic novel is so good... it tells the story of the Islamic Revolution in Iran by the author's eyes.
It's super easy to read, with the right balance between humour and tragedy. I also loved the underlying feminism <3

A great way to start my reading year. I had already read Embroideries, by Satrapi, but this one is way better. A great personal account of the recent history of Iran, through the struggles of a girl growing there, moving to Europe for a short period, and then coming back - all this, told in an informative, sarcastic, fun and moving way. A great book, highly recommended.
Now reserved to be read by my oldest Pequetinha and then passed along to irus (or vice-versa).

Daughter read it first, and then passed it to me.
I really loved this book and how it can gives - either in words or drawings - the growing pains of a girl that becomes a teenager and then a woman, in a country where being a female is a struggle. I loved this big-mouth girl, who never thinks twice before saying what goes on her mind, but also her wise grandmother.
Thanks Tuanita and Pequete for allowing me to read it.
Before returning it to Pequete, i will lend it to a non-BC friend.

My non-BC friend just finished it.
She loved it and said she learned many things about Iran she was unaware of.
Now I'll return the book to Pequete,

Thank you so much, Pequete, for the opportunity to read the book that brought the film with the same name and drawings, which I loved so much some years ago. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it, but I will... :)
