The following is a response to Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis.

As the end of this semester comes to an end, after finishing up drafts and reflection essays, I have more time to sit down and read. I had heard about this book from several different people and so I borrowed Efad’s copy. It has been so long that I read a graphic novel and even longer that I read one as moving as this one.

The story wasn’t just about living in Iran, but about growing up in general. Satrapi deals with wanted to grow up fast, to go out to the demonstrations in the street, to wear what she wants, and to tell the truth in the classroom. The ink that she puts on the page is beautiful.
