Persepolis 1 and 2 by Marjane Satrapi

Anyone looking for a very interesting memoir, in graphic novel form, should check out Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and the sequel, Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return. It was my first graphic novel, but not my last.

Marjane Satrapi tells of her childhood in Iran pre-revolution, and then how things changed during the revolution, her education in Europe and then her return. Fascinating and frustrating. Now a movie, I haven't seen yet, but would be interested in.

My full review is here at my blog.
