"This is a book to provoke and entertain" (Peter Millar The Times)
"Satrapi's drawings are sparing and highly stylised; she is able to render nuances of expression with simple, bold strokes... The stories are wittily told and show a side of life in Iran that is unknown to outsiders" (Lydia Adetunji Financial Times)
"A daring and brilliantly calculated illumination of a secret space... Though Embroideries is not a continuation of the Persepolis story, it sits at the heart of the same world - a brutally policed society where an extraordinarily rich and inventive culture still prevails, if only behind closed doors, where women are wildly subversive, funny, free-thinking and sexy" (Maureen Freely Guardian)
"This is Sex and the City, Middle-Eastern style - outrageous, explicit and funny" (Kelly Knox Time Out) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.
From the author of the acclaimed comic-strip autobiography Persepolis comes this comic book for grown-ups, a gloriously entertaining and revealing look into the sex lives of Iranian women. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.See all Product description

I read this book in one hour, and in this hour both laughed and cried. I have bought several copies to give as gifts.
As other reviewers have mentioned Persepolis, I would highlight this is not a sequel and should not be read as such. It is a stand alone work and should be considered as such.
The main downside to the book is that because the narrative jumps suddenly, it glosses over a few of the more interesting stories in order to fit everyone in. This is a collection of short stories (very short!).
