it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, society

This is a rare but unquestionable "5 star" rating for me. The graphic novel format takes the achingly-spare text into deep layers of social and self criticism. Having read this after Reading Lolita In Tehran, the two together paint a world-tragic picture of human triumph, suffering, and mistakes.
