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
