Product description

Review

Telling the story of Satrapi’s childhood in Iran, this is funny, wise and sad., Stylist

Persepolis…has an outward simplicity that utterly beguiles: her black and white drawings resemble old-fashioned woodcuts; her narrative is almost breezily concise -- Rachel Cooke, Royal Academy Magazine

This touching, funny, illuminating memoir deserves a much wider audience. -- Kate Figes, Guardian

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

Persepolis is a stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction. -- David Jenkins, Sunday Telegraph
