Description

  • Pantheon Books
  • 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.
