Persepolis I & II - Marjane Satrapi

  • Eigenschappen

The brilliant graphic memoir of growing up in Iran during and after the Islamic revolution.

Marjane Satrapi lived through the Iranian Revolution as a little girl. This is her classic memoir-in-comic-strips, the story of a child entangled in the history and politics of her country. It paints an unforgettable portrait of growing up in revolutionary and war-torn Iran, in a family that was both outrageous and ordinary, beset by tragedy and yet buffered by love. Funny, wise, ultimately heartbreaking and told with unforgettable pictures.

‘A will remember it for a very long time’ Mark Haddon

‘The magic of Marjane Satrapi’s work is that it can condense a whole country’s tragedy into one poignant, funny scene after another’ Independent on Sunday

THE COMPLETE PERSEPOLIS VOLUMES I & II: Includes The Story of a Childhood and The Story of a Return.
