“Persepolis is a graphic novel that is narrated by a young girl but crafted with the eloquence of a woman's perspective. Satrapi reflects on her childhood in Iran and her struggles to negotiate her own identity in the midst of violence, fear, and fundamentalism. A heartfelt and hilarious coming-of-age story for both adult and teenage readers!”
— Izzy Cohen, DIESEL, A Bookstore, Oakland, CA
