Persepolis tells the story of Marjane Satrapi’s youth in Iran in the 1970s and 80s, of living through the Islamic Revolution and the war with Iraq. It is a book about childhood, a childhood at once outrageous and ordinary—beset by the unthinkable, but buffered by an extraordinary and loving family. Persepolis was published in four volumes in France, where it met with enormous critical acclaim, garnered comparisons to Art Spiegelman’s Maus, and won several prestigious comic book awards (Prix Alph’art Coup de Coeur at Angoulême, Prix du Lion in Belgium, Prix Alph’art du meilleur scénario, and the Prix France Info). Persepolis has been translated into German, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian, among other languages. The work is published as two volumes in the United States: Persepolis and Persepolis 2. It was chosen by the Young Adult Library Association as one of its recommended titles for all students (the list is revised every 5 years and used by educators and librarians across the country), and also named as one of the “100 Best Books of the Decade” by The Times (London). Marjane Satrapi’s other books include Embroideries and her latest adult book, Chicken with Plums (fall 2006). Satrapi is also the author of several children’s books, including Monsters are Afraid of the Moon.
