Collects a groundbreaking two-part graphic memoir, in which the great-granddaughter of Iran's last emperor and the daughter of ardent Marxists describes growing up in Tehran, a country plagued by political upheaval and vast contradictions between public and private life. Original. 50,000 first printing.
Originally appearing in two volumes, this essential work depicts Satrapi's childhood in Iran during the 1979 revolution. She was a spirited and intelligent young girl, and while the memoir focuses on her life first in Iran and later in France, it also details the experience of living in Iran under a strict regime. The black-and-white illustrations are simple, yet capable of portraying great emotion. This title will likely be asked for by name. - "Drawing on Reality " LJ Reviews 2/2/2012 (c) Copyright 2011.
