The Complete Persepolis

Marjane Satrapi created an intriguing graphic novel/memoir of being a young adult during the Iranian Revolution(s). What a fine research aid for the complementary subplot in my current work–a way to remember that in no country are the people a monolithic bunch. Satrapi’s family members demonstrate some different perspectives on the issues of their days. Definitely worth a look, especially in light of the ongoing changes across the Middle East this year.
