Synopsis:
A New York Times Notable Book
A Time Magazine “Best Comix of the Year”
A San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times Best-seller

Wise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran’s last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country.

Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Marjane’s child’s-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.

Review:
"[Satrapi] is such a talented artist and her black-and-white drawings are so captivating, it seems wrong to call her memoir a comic book....What Satrapi hopes to do is defend her country, and her beguiling memoir should accomplish that for many readers."

Gloria Emerson, Nation, 06/16/2003

Review:
"Marjane Satrapi's PERSEPOLIS is the latest and one of the most delectable examples of a booming postmodern genre: autobiography by comic book....Contemporary American cartoonists tend often to operate in a twilight zone of ironically diminished expectation [while] PERSEPOLIS, by contrast, dances with drama and insouciant wit."

Fernanda Eberstadt, New York Times Book Review, 05/11/2003
