“Chicken with Plums is a feast you’ll devour.”
Newsweek

Acclaimed graphic artist Marjane Satrapi brings what has become her signature humor and insight, her keen eye and ear, to the heartrending story of a celebrated Iranian musician who gives up his life for music and love.

When Nasser Ali Khan, the author’s great-uncle, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged, he takes to his bed, renouncing the world and all its pleasures. Over the course of the week that follows, we are treated to vivid scenes of his encounters with family and friends, flashbacks to his childhood, and flash-forwards to his children’s future. And as the pieces of his story fall into place, we begin to understand the breadth of his decision to let go of life.

The poignant story of one man, it is also stunningly universal—a luminous tale of life and death, and the courage and passion both require of us.

About the Author:

Marjane Satrapi was born in Rasht, Iran. She now lives in Paris, where she is a regular contributor to magazines and newspapers throughout the world, including The New Yorker and The New York Times. She is also the author of several children’s books, the memoir Embroideries, and the internationally best-selling and award-winning comic book autobiography in two parts, Persepolis and Persepolis 2. She co-wrote and co-directed the Academy Award-nominated animated film version of Persepolis.

Review:

Praise for Chicken with Plums

“It’s amazing to see how much complexity and narrative cunning Satrapi crams into her images . . . Chicken with Plums is the most intricately laminated of her tales: The author shuffles past, present, and future like a cardsharp.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Beguiling . . . Completely seamless.”
The Boston Globe

“Satrapi pushes the boundaries of her work further still . . . [She is] an Iranian Colette.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Inspired.”
Elle

“Satrapi’s deceptively simple, remarkably powerful drawings match the precise but flexible prose she employs in adapting to her multiple roles as educator, folklorist, and grand-niece.”
The New Yorker

Praise for Persepolis

“A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran, Persepolis provides a unique glimpse into a nearly unknown and unreachable way of life . . . That Satrapi chose to tell her remarkable story as a gorgeous comic books makes it unique and totally indispensable.”
Time

“It is virtually impossible to read Persepolis without falling in love.”
Baltimore Sun

“The most original coming-of-age story from the Middle East yet.”
People

“A mighty achievement.”
USA Today

“Wildly charming.”
The New York Times Book Review
