Welcome to the study companion for 'Persepolis', Marjane Satrapi's best-selling, internationally acclaimed graphic novel.
'Persepolis' is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during Iran's Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up.
'Persepolis' is an acclaimed work from one of the most highly regarded, graphic artists at work today.
