Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

by Marjane Satrapi
The graphic novel approach to this memoir makes the story of a girl growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution even more poignant. As Persepolis examines daily life in Iran, it also deals with a child's view of parents, friends, and old and new heroes — all within the mixed framework of family, politics, and growing up.
