Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood – Marjane Satrapi

You know what’s lovely? When you get to have a homemade lunch with a friend from way, way back. You know what’s even more lovely? When she gives you a book!

With Iran so much in the news these days it really was perfect timing to finally read Persepolis. Satrapi covers the last revolution (1979) from her and her family’s perspective and then what happened to her as a teen/adult as a consequence.

The book is 20 years old, so I’m not going to go into more, but if you’re like me and backed up with books to read maybe move this one towards the top of the pile.
