Product description


Praise for "Persepolis "and "Persepolis 2""A mighty achievement [and] an inspiring coming-of-age story." --"USA Today" "Delectable . . . Dances with drama and insouciant wit." --"New York Times Book Review""It is virtually impossible to read "Persepolis "without falling in love." --"Baltimore Sun" "One of the freshest and most original memoirs of our day. [Satrapi's] is a voice calling out to the rest of us, reminding us to embrace this child's fervent desire that human dignity reign supreme." --"Los Angeles Times""""Cause for celebration . . . Superb." --"Philadelphia Inquirer ""Delightful . . . It is our good fortune that Satrapi has never stopped visiting Iran in her mind." --"Newsweek" Praise for "Embroideries""Stories of sex, love and marriage, ranging from the disheartening to hysterically funny . . . "Embroideries "generates a flavorful mix of perspectives with engaging, fully fleshed-out characters." --"The Miami Herald" "Tantalizing . . . Bold, bewitchingly humorous and politically astute." --"Elle ""As funny, opinionated, controversial, and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be." --"Time.com" "Subversive . . . Satrapi's book is a mocking rebuke to the cult of chastity, and a statement about the way human passions find their way around the most determined repression." --"Salon " "From the Hardcover edition."
