Persepolis, is a graphic memoir recounting Satrapi’s childhood in Iran during the overthrow of the Shah. Hopes of the revolution are dashed as the the terror of the Khomeini years, the war with Iraq take place. Satrapi is sent by her parents to Europe and so starts her painful path to adulthood. Persepolis, the Greek name for Persia, is moving and extremely funny, the young Marjane is a stroppy, veil-wearing Marxist-anarchist who embraces her many contradictions with self-absorbed relish.
