Persepolis Marjane Satrapi was born in Rashjt, Iran into a modern and aristocratic family.


That these stories are veritas is what grants them their gravitas. Topics Books The Observer.

This book is a little lighter of a read since it does not deal as much with war and politics. I think the funniest moment was the woman who tried to cut herself with a razor narjane her wedding night so her husband would think she was a virgin but instead the woman cut her husband!

Her motto here is: Finished in one shot, that’s how amazing and laughable this book was. Books by Marjane Satrapi. That search produced another graphic novel entitled Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I’ll still read her other book about Iran, “Chicken with Plums” and hope that she’s returned to her evocative story-telling. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

Her husband her thirdpacked off back to bed after maruane wakes up and disturbs the women, seems less happy. Set up a giveaway. I’m an Amazon Affiliate. My senior year in college I was introduced to a graphic novel memoir by Art Spiegelman entitled Maus. Persepolis ‘Persepolis’ became an instant success; not only was this the first Iranese comic ever, she designed it especially to tell people about the real Iran, beyond the prejudices that surround a dictatorship.

Each woman’s story spans just a few pages, but touching, amusing punchlines are delivered every time. What is equally unclear is the reason for naming her extended anecdote in this way.

A much more chatty account than Persepolis but one full of warmth, humour and a group of fascinating women sharing their wisdom. Nonetheless, the comic lacked in depth and wasn’t as well put together as Persepolis.


Satrapi was in charge of the samovar and stated that the broferies at noon and night functioned as a gathering time for women to discuss men, love, sex and even plastic surgery. So I was disappointed by this comparatively shallow book. Nah, setelah beres membaca bukunya, dengan ini saya nyatakan kalau saya menarik kembali kedua komen saya itu.

Marjane Satrapi has a gift of bringing images of Iran to life with minimal words and simple but elegant drawings. Sono occasioni di incontro e di confronto in cui un’apparente leggerezza dei toni permette di affrontare temi complicati e di ottenere, quando necessario, un consiglio o una sgridata. Satrapi grew up in Tehran in a family which was involved with communist and socialist movements in Iran prior to the Iranian Revolution. No doubt this book touches on the broad subject of feminism, which is, concern for women’s sa Marjane Satrapi is most probably my favorite graphic novel illustrator.

Only when the women brkderies retired to the sitting room to enjoy their teas are they ready for the most important business of the day: In this book, Satrapi didn’t use the panel frames she uses in Persepolis and that are common in graphic novels, the drawings are all over the page, less constrained. You keep wanting to join in. I was absolutely fascinated with their gossipy personalities and how comfortable they felt at poking fun at the men in their lives.

The images strengthened the words in such a way that when I was done reading it I actually felt like I knew broderiez had spent a little time with these women.

I long for more and more. She is also the author of the internationally best-selling and award-winning comic book autobiography in two parts, Persepolis and Persepolis 2. What a great story!


Observer review: Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi | Books | The Guardian

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. As the blurb on the book says, these stories “will strike us as at once deeply familiar and profoundly different from our own” and I’m inclined to agree.

An amusing portrayal of independent women taking life in stride. Purchase for yourself purchase for friends.

This is meant to be a humorous read, but those of us that are familiar with such archaic, persisting, and damaging beliefs and actions that the women experience will feel some anger or sadness. Naturally, the subject turns to love, sex and the vagaries of men. They catch their readers by surprise, too, marrying words and images in odd and alluring ways to draw us into huge and hugely controversial terrain, and – before they have even begun to fill in the background – they make us feel as if we’re there, in the thick of it.

Leggere “Taglia e cuci” trasporta il lettore normalmente escluso in quanto maschio e soprattutto la lettrice in un consesso in cui si parla e si sparla liberamente, si ride e si beve. Family gossip is my Achilles’ heel. Urhunden Prize for Foreign Album By turns revealing and hilarious, these are stories about the lengths to which some women will go to find a man, keep a man or, most important, keep up appearances.

This is the reason they progress!!! In Embroideries, she works on a smaller canvas; the book is set around a samovar in Tehran, the young Satrapi joining her grandmother, mother and relatives and neighbours to talk of love and sex while their menfolk have a nap.

I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi’s follow up to the fantastic two volume “Persepolis”.
