The Wire | Persepolis



Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. One of my favorite graphic novels, it seems more important now than ever before. The powerful story is only enhanced by the strikingly clean black and white images.
