Product Details


“It’s amazing to see how much complexity and narrative cunning Satrapi crams into her images … Chicken with Plums is the most intricately laminated of her tales: The author shuffles past, present, and future like a cardsharp.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Beguiling … Completely seamless.”
The Boston Globe

“Satrapi pushes the boundaries of her work further still . . . [She is] an Iranian Colette.”
San Francisco Chronicle


“Satrapi’s deceptively simple, remarkably powerful drawings match the precise but flexible prose she employs in adapting to her multiple roles as educator, folklorist, and grand-niece.”
The New Yorker

Praise for Persepolis

“A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran, Persepolis provides a unique glimpse into a nearly unknown and unreachable way of life … That Satrapi chose to tell her remarkable story as a gorgeous comic books makes it unique and totally indispensable.”

“It is virtually impossible to read Persepolis without falling in love.”
Baltimore Sun

“The most original coming-of-age story from the Middle East yet.”

“A mighty achievement.”
USA Today

“Wildly charming.”
The New York Times Book Review
