Product Details

Praise

“Tantalizing . . . Bold, bewitchingly humorous and politically astute . . . A cheeky and knowing peek at the loves, sexual histories and marital secrets of . . . these beautiful and seductive women.”
Elle

“Endearing . . . A wicked read.”
Los Angeles Times

“Humorous and bawdy . . . An amusing portrayal of independent women taking life in stride.”
The Village Voice

Embroideries is as funny, opinionated, controversial and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be.”
Time.com

“Subversive . . . Satrapi’s book is a mocking rebuke to the cult of chastity, and a statement about the way human passions find their way around the most determined repression.”
Salon

“By turns bawdy and heartbreaking . . . Of all Satrapi’s books, Embroideries most effectively tears down the divide between Iranian and American culture, showing how women everywhere are similar.”
The Capital Times (Madison)
