Description

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.
