Wise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s 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 and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. 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 reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with 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.

    it was amazing

    I knew a little about Iran. Not much, but a little. I knew it had been through a lot of changes, and that most of those changes had been steps backward when it came to personal freedom.
    Here’s a cool little 1 minute video that gives you a visual look at some of the changes in style, if you’re interested.

    Alright. What I didn’t know was the hows and whys. And to be honest, it never occurred to me to delve much deeper.

    Alright. What I didn’t know was the hows and whys. And to be honest, it never occurred to me to delve much deeper.
    There was a revolution, some religious nutters took over, and then everyone started dressing like they were back in the stone ages.
    People in my country choose to wear burkas, so I just assumed most of the people in Iran thought it was a good thing.

    description

    Now, maybe my original views sound sort of stupid, but in my defense, I honestly don’t understand why anyone does anything when it comes to religion. So covering yourself head to toe doesn’t sounds any weirder than not using birth control, avoiding certain foods, or refusing medical treatment. And don’t get me started on that My Husband is the Head of the House shit…
    My point is, if people willing do those things because of religious beliefs, why not clothing stuff?
    Hello? Amish, much?

    description

    But really this story is about much more than just clothes. It’s about the slow and methodical war waged on freedom of any kind in Iran, and it’s told through the eyes of a woman who lived through it as a child.

    description

    Since she comes from a wealthy and educated household, you get a different perspective than maybe you would otherwise. Her parents are actively protesting the changes, while also trying to maintain a sense of normalcy in their home.

    description

    Growing up in a home like that made an impression on her, and you can see how she bucks and rebels as she approaches her teenage years. She wasn’t raised to be quiet and docile, so she chafes under her country’s regime.

    description

    My son and I read this one right around the same time, and he thought it was an incredibly enlightening story, as well.
    Actually, he said something like this:
    Hey, that was pretty cool. I didn’t know any of that stuff happened in Iran.
    High praise from the teenager!
    Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading the second part of this story, because…That Ending!

    Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. It was an eye-opening, heartbreaking and thought provoking book— I had many thoughts and feelings while reading, so much so that I had to put it down multiple times to take a breather.

    I was in a haze for a very long time after finishing it— and I kept questioning everything in my surroundings.

    Here are some instances that made me put down the book and think for a while (they contain *spoilers*):

    “He never got to see his son” resonated with me deeply.

    The relationships between the families, especially between Marji and her mother, also hit home for me.
    There was one instance in particular that stayed with me— when her mother was willing to sew posters into her own coat just to bring them back to her daughter without marks.


    description

    (It actually hurt when she thanked her father first.)

    And the feelings of fear and terror and bravery Marji felt during the war were captured in such an honest way that I couldn’t help but feel them with her.

    The incredibly supportive women and men in Marji’s life were inspiring. They all held a significant part in her journey, and it just made me tear up towards the end, especially when Marji left for Vienna.

    All in all, this graphic novel was a complete game-changer for me, and I seriously cannot believe it took me so long to pick up.

    it was amazing

    They are among the rare books that I give a 5 which means:
    a. they will come with me wherever I go
    b. I will read them again and again until I remember every single sentence
    c. I will not lend them to people :p.

    Tita introduced me to these books. I have been very interested on Iran and was even contemplating to read the autobiography of Farah Pahlavi, the Empress of Iran. After repeated visits to the bookshop to flip the pages of this autobiography, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to part with my money fo

    Tita introduced me to these books. I have been very interested on Iran and was even contemplating to read the autobiography of Farah Pahlavi, the Empress of Iran. After repeated visits to the bookshop to flip the pages of this autobiography, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to part with my money for the typical self-indulgent autobiography.

    So Persepolis immediately caught my interest and I wasn’t disappointed.

    The books tell an honest and poignant story of a well-to-do family during the political turmoil in Iran from the perspective of the little and, in book II, adult Marjane Satrapi. The story is told thru’ a stark black and white drawing. I marvel at her ability to present only relevant and interesting highlights of her life and Iran and meld them all to one solid, flowing story. They are sometimes tragic moments but told without self-pity. In between, there are generous doses of light, funny moments. I laugh and I cry reading this book.

    One of the most powerful parts for me is when the parents, who love her so much, let her go to study in Austria. She talks about how horrible goodbyes are and how important it is not to look back after you say your goodbyes. You can be scarred with the image you see when looking back. How true…

    I won’t say more about these books. All I can suggest is read them. You won’t regret it. They open mind to what hardship can be when freedom of self is not allowed. They are enganging. They are entertaining. They are sad. They are funny. They are everything I hope a book can be.

    Thanks Tita.
