Product description

Review

"Telling the story of Satrapi’s childhood in Iran, this is funny, wise and sad." (Stylist)

"Persepolis…has an outward simplicity that utterly beguiles: her black and white drawings resemble old-fashioned woodcuts; her narrative is almost breezily concise" (Rachel Cooke Royal Academy Magazine)

"This touching, funny, illuminating memoir deserves a much wider audience." (Kate Figes Guardian)

"The magic of Marjane Satrapi's work is that it can condense a whole country's tragedy into one poignant, funny scene after another." (Natasha Walter Independent on Sunday)

"Persepolis is a stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction." (David Jenkins Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

Another astonishing work of graphic non-fiction, the story of a girl growing up in Iran during the Revolution
