5.0 out of 5 stars buy it! its fab!, 9 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Persepolis: The Story of an Iranian Childhood (Hardcover)
I really really loved this book, which I bought because of a couple of glowing reviews in newspapers. Its so good, I'd say you're really missing out if you haven't read it. Everyone I buy it for ends up buying it for their friends too. Basically its the story of a very precocious girl living in Tehran with liberal secular parents and how they live through the Islamic Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War, but its not heavy-going despite that. Its full of both funny and poignant moments, and the author is fairly frank about how as a child she would cause her folks loads of stress. The way she works the story between the words and images is wonderful. Buy it! You'll love it. I'm reserving the next volume right now.

Her parents - and extended family - are Marxists, not liberal secularists!
