An intelligent and outspoken only child, Satrapi--the daughter of radical Marxists and the great-granddaughter of Iran's last emperor--bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Originally published to wide critical acclaim in France, where it elicited comparisons to Art Spiegelman's Maus, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi's wise, funny, and heartbreaking memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, 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. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran's last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran: of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life and of the enormous toll repressive regimes exact on the individual spirit. Marjane's child's-eye-view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a stunning reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, through laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.… (més)

Hardship forces people to change. The author walks us along the path of political turbulence in Iran and shows us how different people react when everything around them turns upside down. Some adapt by throwing away their values and becoming more like the ruling power. Others try to fight it and get imprisoned, tortured, exiled, killed. And then there are the survivors who combine adaptation with resistance: the little girl and her parents are among them.
Through the eyes of a little girl it is terrifying to see how kind intelligent loving people have to bend and twist to the destructive whims of the powerful.
For me this was an emotional rollercoaster. Hope, despair, tenderness, rage, love, fear. I kept silently shouting at the characters: "Why are you doing this? Don't you see you are hurting others?"

A graphic novel describing how it was like growing up during the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

This book was fascinating. I'm not a graphic novel fan, but I'm glad I made the exception here. I do, however, feel again the stark reality that I am completely ignorant and privileged. And I don't know what to do about it, other than learn more. This book was a good start in that direction. ( )

Each time I read a graphic memoir, I think how marvelously this genre and medium complement one another.

Persepolis is fascinating examination of the Islamic Revolution and its consequences in Iran through the eyes of a child raised in a modern Iranian home. It's both an interesting story and an educational opportunity to see this important part of history through Persian eyes. It's a sober reminder of humanity's inhumanity to read parallels to Atwood's Handmaid's Tale and other dystopian tales in non-fiction. One can readily forget that the fiction authors have more than adequate inspiration from real-life events. ( )
  Zoes_Human | Nov 11, 2023 |
It's good, emotional. The art style is excellent, very clear, minimalistic, strong lines blocks of black etc. It's a pleasure to look at it and it makes the few horrible scenes it illustrates (eg a dismembered body) all the more shocking. The writing is good too and emotional and gets across the impact of living on the edge well. It's v personal and keyed to her very particular experience and don't expect like in depth analysis of her family's existence, the causes of the revolution or whatever. It's great ( )

This book deserved more than a three but I'm not sure it was a four. I am anxious to read the second book. It was haunting. ( )

Satrapi’s style is almost primitive, consisting of flat figures with simple shapes and features. It’s more sophisticated than a child’s creations, but it superficially resembles them, an approach that supports the presentation of memories from that period of life.
 
Marjane Satrapi's ''Persepolis'' is the latest and one of the most delectable examples of a booming postmodern genre: autobiography by comic book.

Persepolis was originally published in 4 volumes. Some later editions, especially in the U.S., combined volumes 1-2 into one work Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood; volumes 3-4 were combined into Persepolis: The Story of a Return. Keep this in mind when combining/separating.
Please determine if your item is a videorecording of the film adaptation Persepolis, a copy of the first of four Persepolis graphic novels published in France, a copy of the English edition Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, or a copy of the Complete Persepolis. Then please separate it and combine it with the appropriate item.
