Recommended to Patrick by: Raiza

The second half of Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel finds her graduating high school in Austria and returning, in what she feels is shame, to her tumultuous and repressive native land of Iran in the late 1980's, where she finds herself alienated from her peers, looking for true love, searching for her personal identity, etc. It's strange that something so culturally different in terms of era and geography can still be so easy to relate to. I'm pretty excited to see the animated movie when it comes out on DVD. Also I looked up some pictures of Satrapi and she is pretty hot for a terrorist.
