Product description

The Story of a Childhood and The Story of a Return The intelligent and outspoken child of radical Marxists, and the great-grandaughter of Iran's last emperor, Satrapi 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. This is a beautiful and intimate story full of tragedy and humour - raw, honest and incredibly illuminating.

Review quote

"A revelation...you will remember it for a very long time" -- Mark Haddon "Persepolis is a stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction" -- David Jenkins Sunday Telegraph "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 "I cannot praise enough Marjane Satrapi's moving account of growing up as a spirited young girl in revolutionary and war-time Iran. Persepolis is disarming and often humorous but ultimately it is shattering" -- Joe Sacco "A tour de force to rival Maus" The Times
