Persepolis: The story of a childhood

Persepolis: The story of a childhood by Marjane Satrapi

Published in 2000

156 pages

Marjane Satrapi's memoir on growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution is a a great read. My review is here.

I really liked both of these books and saw Marjane Satrapi speak about writing them when I lived in Chicago. They inspired me to read the memoir "Reading Lolita in Terhan," because I also knew little about Iran. I wonder if the movie will capture the depth and humor?
