A beautifully written graphic novel. It has good points toward the history of recent Iran, but she's written in a way that I felt was a lot more relatable and readable towards the modern reader. Absolutely loved it. Once you read the book though, be sure to find the movie.

A must read.

I read that the graphic novel, Persepolis by Satrapi pairs well with the book Before We Were Free by J. Alvarez.

2010 selection for the "One Book, One Philadelphia" community reading program.
