ANDY’S PICK :: COMPLETE PERSEPOLIS SATRAPI SGN BOOKPLATE ED TP:
This important groundbreaking two-volume memoir of the author’s young life in Iran before, during and after the Islamic Revolution is essential reading. ┬áThe writer/artist Marjane Satrapi uses her cute and cartoony art style to weave a unique tapestry that includes scenes of high tension and tragedy, but also reminds the reader that there is always hope as long as the human spirit endures.
Is Persepolis a┬ámasterpiece? Since its original publication, readers have been torn–especially since the first part of the narrative is so powerful, it tends to┬ádwarf┬áthe coming-of-age atmosphere of the latter chapters. ┬áBut at the end of the day– it belongs on everyone’s must-read list. ┬áAnd this brand new edition–that collects both volumes and is┬álimited to 400 signed bookplate editions signed by creator Marjane Satrapi at only at 24.95 makes it hard to pass up!!
