Read in November, 2007

Marji (Marjane) Satrapi is the daughter of political dissidents in the Shah's Iran. In spare but powerful prose, this graphic novel shows us the Iranian revolution from the eyes of a child.

The artwork is simple, appropriately child-like, and done entirely in black and white.

Normally graphic novels make me impatient -- the format just isn't my favorite. This one, however, grabbed my attention. I have already reserved the sequel (Persepolis 2) from my library so I can continue following Marji.
