Return to Book Page. Well all that is for his wife. I wasn’t amazed by it but it did the job. Books by Marjane Satrapi.

Satrapi decided If you’ve read her graphic memoir you would already know that Marjane Satrapi was born in in Rasht, Iran.

East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. But the impression is a fairly fleeting and shallow one, and it’s best enjoyed in the moment and has little resonance.

I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi’s follow up to the fantastic two volume “Persepolis”. But, as broferies to be the case in such exchanges of stories tossed back and forth across a table or room at this sort of gathering, they are less real stories than anecdotes.

According to her autobiographical graphic novel, Persepolis, she stayed in Vienna through her high school years, staying in friends’ homes, but spent three months living on the streets. Divertente, toccante e illuminante! That being said, it’s an easy read and gives a glimpse of Iranian culture among women. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. I ordered this book for a friend’s birthday as she is a huge fan of Marjane Satrapi.


Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. The potential is fantastic to really delve into the beliefs and traditions surrounding these topics.

I was not expecting to read such liberal discussions of their sex lives.

I also don’t want those Iranians who lost their lives in prisons. This is a short, amusing read, though not at all on par with the impactful Persepolis books by the same author. The stories weren’t connected in any way that gave them depth, and individually they had the feel of overhearing some gossip on the bus about someone you don’t know – mildly interesting but nothing to think about after it is over.

There was talk of marriage, love, unfeasible men, sex, double standards, body image That there is no need to have prior knowledge of the events she witnesses at first hand – the fall of the shah, the rise of the ayatollahs, and the Iran-Iraq war – was brought home to me when my and year-old daughters picked up these books in idle curiosity only to shut themselves up in their rooms until they had devoured every page. I long for more and more. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

There’s nothing extremely special about that.

Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi

See 1 question about Embroideries…. The stories are nicely related: It is also a book which, despite the despair in it, is genuinely life-enhancing. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Her motto here is: I was absolutely fascinated with their gossipy personalities and how comfortable they felt at poking fun at the men in their lives.


Marjane Satrapi

Marjane Satrapi is most probably my favorite graphic novel illustrator. Satrrapi also was unaware of the numerous tactics used to maintain this freedom in what is a very male-dominated society and when you learn what embroidery means I live for those moments when my mother and I get to discuss old memories of hers and mine. I read the Persepolis books several years ago and watched the movie. I think the funniest moment was the woman who tried to cut herself with a razor on her wedding night so her husband would think she was a virgin but instead the woman cut her husband!

She is also the author of the internationally best-selling and award-winning comic satrapk autobiography in two parts, Persepolis and Persepolis 2. I’ll still read her other book about Iran, “Chicken with Plums” and hope that she’s returned to satfapi evocative story-telling.

This is the last book I’ve read of hers mrajane is autobiographical, and it doesn’t necessarily hold up to the weight of the Persepolis series, but it is valuable in its own way.

I expected this book to have some unexpected insights into Iranian women and their thoughts on sexuality, marriage, and men.
