Bordados : Marjane Satrapi :

It was a quick, light humorous read, a lighthearted look at serious topics. So, you know, no plot.

I read Embroideries at my local bookshop and am glad to leave it at that. We like her this maejane. Share your thoughts with other customers.

Sure, it grants an interesting insight into Iranian culture with a much needed focus on Iranian women but, all in all, the comic is too short and superficial to have really satisfied me. Recommended eatrapi a good friend. During this time, Satrapi went to numerous illegal parties hosted by her friends, where she met a man named Reza, a veteran of the Iran-Iraq War. Bawdy and quite fun.

I think that generally speakinga dick isn’t really photogenic.

There should be more graphic novels about women’s sex lives. Just as funnny as I allready know the written style of Marjane. After an almost deadly bout of pneumonia, she returned to Iran.

In Persepolis we see a culture where women were treated in a vastly different manner than men.

I was absolutely fascinated with their gossipy personalities and how comfortable they felt at poking fun at the men in their lives. Her other works had more unity and a sense of purpose – and the pictures were expressive and interesting – this is simply a snapshot of stepped upon, crass, embittered Iranian women yapping about stupid men being stupid.

I am also always on the lookout for a great graphic novel, as I have very limited exposure.
